That seems like a reasonable theory to me. I was kind of wondering.
I love it. All that guitar has been through and it still has that CE sticker on the back of the headstock. Why do so many people leave those on?!
I think that is exactly what happened.
I would add to the suspicion that the tuners cracked the neck.
I would get a new neck and ream those tuner holes properly.
Dunno. I don't know anything about this kind of stuff, other than what I've read. If I was following advice, I personally would probably pick the one that said something like 'remove hardware, clean it up, clamp it and glue it.'
But really, I just want to say, that Tele looks totally flippin' ace!
Depends on the fretboard radius. If it was ever anything other than 12”, it needs to be replaced.
Agreed. Absolute eyesore that’s super easy to take care of. The worst is when it’s been on there forever and the finish is a different color underneath.
I would trust it more if I knew how it was repaired or if I had done it myself.
Did the owner who fixed it fix it to last, or fix it to sell it? Did the person who fixed it know what they were doing? It’s also kind of hard to tell how bad the actual break is.
As others have said though, I’d just play it and worry about getting a new neck when that one fails.
Played it till my fingers bled........................
Try breaking it again with string tension on it. Whack it a few times, see if the glue joint looks strong. A decent glue joint is usually stronger than the wood. Then, try to wick some CA in there. Then clean it up, make it smooth, and play it. Worst case scenario is that it breaks again when you are playing Carnegie Hall.
Nice looking guitar, just watch out for slivers. Id sand down that crack just to make sure you don't jam a slice of wood in your hand, ouch! Other than that looks like an ok find.
I would trust it to break again.
But who knows?
Maybe it will last for years to come.
