Could be the simple answer
It was standing up in a case/against an amp/stand and fell over?
That's what happened the first time; I bought it for a song with the factory-fitted broken headstock. The other times were different.
Okay I think I got it now!
The fall break happens, you acquire it the headstock breaks again from the first bad repair and just hard rocking, then it is fixed again and the third break happens from the Townsending!?
More than 3?
That's pretty much exactly what happened - it's a sad story any LP player knows too well!
Now, for extra points, what's wrong with the headstock?
I don’t think I’m good enough to tell , I’m not sure I see a serial number could it be a complete replacement?
Got it in one! The dimensions are all wrong.
A very battered gator guitar case, thankfully still does its job
I don’t baby my instruments or abuse them. Most are in really good nick.
My early 80’s jazz bass has done the rounds of cramped theatre pits and picked up a few dings on the way. Its pretty battered.
My ‘63 Casino was out playing last night and did every number bar one. Killer rock guitar with hot, bright P90’s It has virtually no varnish left on the back of the neck and only a sliver of wear from my forearm. Rest is still pretty nice although the nitro has small cracks around the f holes and headstock.
I am sure some people must wear sandpaper shirts with some of the wear I see. I seem to be poor at relicing my guitars.
i believe the term is "honest wear"
Sweet looking guitars!
Early '80s (I think) Tokai. It was very knocked about when I got it -- it's even more so now. The original maple neck and tuners were knackered while an anonymous, but pretty decent, replacement with almost new Klusons (and 'F' logo!) cost half as much on Ebay as a refret and new tuners so that's what we have now. Had it been an old Fender I'd have done things differently -- then again I wouldn't have been able to afford it in the first place!
1962 Harmony H305C. I haven't had it long but hope to add to it's character.
It would have to be my '74 Jazz bass & case
dang, that's a nice bass... and a nice house/pool...

I’m guessing my 73 Telecaster Bass
Remember when you could smoke in bars.......if I turn it on and let it get good and warm.....it still smells like that....
(with a little stale Budweiser mixed in...)
1970 Aquila S-125. They were made by Japanese builder Rokkoman, just before Takamine bought them out, for USA Favilla located in Farmingdale NY (after a long history in NYC). Given to me in '71 by a band mate. This is one of only 100 made in Japan. Out of those, this is the only one I've seen that has MOP inlays instead of dots. It is a great sounding guitar.
Gracias por tus amables palabras Alberto.
My 46 Zephyr amp. Actually, for its age it’s pretty clean. Don’t use the handle tho!
Honorable mention, my beloved 64 Tremolux … a few scuffs in the Tolex...
My '98 Fat Tele... Now after two years of heavy gigging is even worse
