Ibanez EGEN18 TVF Broken Headstock Repair Video

I thought some of you guys may find this interesting.

I finally broke my guitar after doing this over 1000 times.
Two days ago, I threw my guitar high in the air 'badly' and it hit the microphone stand on a keyboard riser at the back, then it hit the ground headstock first.

Here is a repair video

This is a short version of the video. I will be posting an extended version with repairs to the splitting body in multiple places as well.

Enjoy

Wow, that was a pretty rough break. From the video it look like it cracked down the lamination which was probably pretty fortunate considering it could have been a lot worse. Definately not the ideal solution, epoxy probably would have been better, but in a pinch and if you didn't have time to let epoxy cure, superglue works good enough. Anyway good on the fly repair and it's not a road guitar if it doesn't have some sort of battle damage with a jerry rigged fix, LOL!
