Got it off some guy whos in some signed band named Cage9. He was selling it for 100 bucks .YAY!

but theres a problem.

?


OH MY GAWD!

It seems that in the heat of a set the singer jumped onto the guy's headstock leaving it like this for several months before landing in the hands of a shortscalite.


It came with all the original hardware, tuners, etc. along with some hipshot detuner on the LOW E slot. The original kluson is going back.

I don't think that's fixable. I think a neck replacement is in order.

Bound and ga....GLUED




I took off all the frets so as to sand and reradius the neck for neatness, using a 10' radius block present on these Toronados.




I'm going to go for smaller vintage styles frets (versus the worn out medium jumbos that were on there) and sand/refinish the back of the neck

I also cleaned off the tape residue and stickers left on the body.

I don't know, the tort on these things are really ugly. Maybe a new pg is in order.

Robt would fix it. Hell, it's an opportunity to see what would happen. RObroe too. $100 is a steal! Good on you.

Maybe that repair will ok. That may be a good neck to strip and paint.

Sub laughs in the face of pessimism. That actually looks like it might just work, and it'll give you a story to tell. For that price, bargain. The frets might even help to keep it together, you never know.

it looked like a clean break.
its definitly work trying to slvage, if anything just for fun.
looks like it will work fine.
you i saw those neck pics in the back ground of the bronco pics and thought.
"what the fuck is he clamping like that?" and now it makes perfect cents.
i bet once you sand it down it will just look like a wierd grain line.

might be an excuse to put a matching headstock, mint pickguard, and jazzmaster pickups on there.

Nice one, they are great guitars. Looks fixable to me, like rob said.. it looks like a clean break. Well done.
Why the vintage frets though? This is the second occasion you have offended me today.

Haha, not on purpose man. Actually, for all the guitars I have, only a few have vintage frets. I've got plenty of jumbo or medium jumbos to get my punk on.

Do all Toronados have the "Fender" Spaghetti logo on the headstock? Sub, anybody?

Nasty example of tort, but I love that scheme on that guitar, looks amazing.



Wanna pick one up, one day.
