    Not a good feeling I would think. Best wishes on return or repair.

    That it does. I hope the refund is resolved soon. The seller has agreed to issue one, and the guitar is being returned to him at his cost tomorrow

    First time it’s happened to me in over 30 guitars in 32 years. Inevitable at some point I guess.

    No. Just the broken headstock. Like I say, the seller has agreed to a refund and has arranged a return courier. I see no reason for me not to get the refund as promised, but obviously I’ll only consider the matter resolved when the money is back in my account.

    It may well have fallen forward, or someone in transit threw another package on top of it. These things happen, I feel bad for the seller tbh.

    Oh man, sorry for that. Wow. This begs the question of insuring, as a seller, your product. Hopefully the seller had this insured for shipping damages.

    And, No STRINGS!
    Send it back. Make them string it for you and tell them it hand better be in perfect Tune when you pull it out of the Box.
    YEP!!!

    What a downer. Sorry to see that.

    I've been scanning eBay for these new LP Standards, and I'm seeing a lot of them with broken headstocks. Epiphone usually makes its necks with a scarf joint, but none shows up in photos of these new models. Does it have a scarf joint?
