Noooo!!! RG570 neck crack...

AFter having survived a drop on it's headstock seemingly unharmed some years ago, (and ironically, telling people about this...doh!) Now, just in the last few days, I find horrible horrible cracks developed in the neck of my beloved '91 RG570 -- my first Ibanez ever... Noooooo!

What to do? The headstock is painted to match the body, like they used to do too...

I'm amazed that they don't crack at the scarf joint. Rich said that the glued joint is typically stronger than the surrounding wood, but I'm surprised by that.

Good luck with the repair. Let us know how it comes out.

Well, it's back from the shop. $40.00, not too bad.
You can still see it, but you can't feel it. Seems to play just fine.
