Bubba must have gotten a new bench grinder....
8th fret is it? Must help him know when to stop when sliding up to solo.
what's the story behind this.Hope it's a good one. Alcohol must be involved,I would guess

I can just see the craigslist ad now- "hardly noticeable and doesn't affect playability"
$20 from a thrift store. Sadly, It's one of those great Korean Squier necks. I got it for the pick guard and pickups to put on another Korean Squire Strat. Now, I'm thinking of putting it together and making it play. Going for that "most trashed guitars" look.
Maybe somebody trying to mark it as a"used" instrument. Can't have any warranty fraud, now can we?
Maybe glue a plug in it....could be a bad fret end job or perhaps an evil person charged with a grinder and the guitar saved his life?
Yeah, like adjason says ,glue in a plug or a strip of wood ,reshape to original shape.See if it works .Put some cheap p/u's in it and sell on CL
Have to wonder about the trussrod though, if it still works? I don't think it would be too hard to plug the slot but if the truss rod is damaged just junk it .
Ive seen some dumb things done to guitars. Mostly just innocent stuff that can be fixed...
I believe this one takes the cake. I saw it and literally just said "why?!" to myself 3 times haha.
Jokes aside, if this is a flat sawn neck, its toast. It WILL bend in that spot and warp out pretty badly. If its quarter sawn, you may be able to plug it up real well, and make it usable perhaps.
Too bad it's one of the nice necks--I had one of those a few years ago, but the body was plywood and weighed a ton. Truss rod will probably be OK for light strings.
A little Bondo and it will be as good as new!
Now we're talkin'! A little Bondo & some fresh strings; Ladies and gentlemen, meet the Fender La Bamba!
Good place to put your cigar while doing some cowboy chords. :mrgreen:
Well you see, it had this little bit of fret sprout so I thought I'd take it over to the grinder and.......
hardly even notice
Someone put their capo on too tight...
I can't see a guitar player getting so messed up he tried to saw his neck in two.I think a guy would most likely smash it al la The Who.Looks like the work of a jealous girlfreind or wife,when she saw sparks from the truss rod she got scared and stopped
Surely you could get 2 quarters in there!
