Broken neck repair on a '90 550PN
I've just purchased (not yet received) a '90 RG550PN with a broken neck. I've researched on how to potentially fix the problem (found it on Ibanez Rules!! - actually looks like a similar break, but worse!). Question is for any member who has done this kind of repair.
I'm planning on stripping the neck and doing a tung oil and wax finish (already done this on my other 550 with great results). Would I be better off repairing the break, then refinishing the neck? or the other way around. I'm not sure what would get the best results,
Also, from the limited pictures I have, it looks like a dirty break (Been there a while) - is there anyway I can clean the break before repairing so it's not so obvious?
Thanks for any advice,
