Broke the headstock on my Jaguar. Anyone know of anywhere that sells cheap vintage style necks? Considered a Squier neck but would rather something better.

Didn't think there was anywhere.

What happened? Pics of the damage?

Was drunk, threw it on my bed and it bounced off and smacked into the wall.

Think that'll glue - I'd try that first.

Aye, it looks repairable.
Something like gorilla glue should do it. You'll need a refin and new decal though.

Hopefully won't be too expensive if it is fixable. That's why I figured a new neck would be a good idea.

Cheers guys.

You could also drill some holes in the sides of the break and add dowels if you think just glue won't hold up.

It is repairable - and fairly easily, but it will be under string pressure so do it properly. Good glue, clamps and a clean joint.

Absolutely that will glue. Don't buy Gorilla Glue, it's not suitable for this job because it foams and expands slightly. Get some Titebond Red, it's not expensive, and also get or borrow a good quality clamp. Remove the tuners and hold the pieces together to make sure you get a good dry fit without a visible gap. Thin smear of Titebond on both broken surfaces, snug them together. Put the clamp across from the flat underside (under "Fender") to the little lip above the nut, and slowly tighten it (put a small block of soft wood between the clamp tightener and the headstock to protect the headstock). Slowly tighten until you see a bead of glue squeeze out, you want almost no glue in there for the strongest bond. Wipe it off with a damp cloth. Leave it completely alone for 24-48 hours. Reinstall tuners, done. The glue is stronger than the wood it's gluing, and the force of the strings is pulling along the face of the headstock - I would be surprised if you had any issues whatsoever.

Forgot to add - you will need to push out the tuner bushing that goes in the break. You can reinstall it with a thin smear of glue when the clamp goes on, maybe give it a slight further tighten after that to make sure it didn't push the crack apart.

Is there any wood missing there? The bottom piece looks like a sheared break and the top part looks splintered...

Useful to know titebond is a better choice glue.
I couldn't remember which one folk used Smile

If possible, get two small flat pieces of wood, sandwich the headstock between those, and then clamp the wood together. You will spread out the clamping more evenly, and avoid damaging the headstock further. Secondly, if you want to just buy a new neck, the Classic Player Jaguar necks are usually a bit cheaper than the other vintage styled necks, but they'll be 9.5" radius instead of 7.25".

ive fixed broken headstocks just like this break before. it will be fine. AND LOOK BAD ASS. do what everyone else has said. just remember to clamp the shit out of it and don't touch it for a couple days. Make sure you are doing it clean without glue mess or you are going to have to dremul that shit off later and it will look like shiiiiiiiiit

To be honest, I lack the skills to fix it. Can't be fucked spending 200+ on a new neck.

Got the number of the guy who fixed Noel Gallagher's ES-355. Was gonna see if he could fix it. He setup the Jaguar for me last year for cheaps. Ain't got work til the 19th though.

BRO YOU DON'T NEED THE GUITAR TECH OF THE MOST FAMOUS GUITAR PLAYER FROM ENGLAND TO FIX YOUR GUITAR.


GO TO THE FUCKIN STORE, GET SOME FUCKIN GLUE, LATHER THAT SHIT UP, STICK THE FUCKIN THING BACK TOGETHER AND CLAMP THE SHIT OUT OF IT WITH CLAMPS.

(CLAMPS COST 2 DOLLARS, THATS LIKE FIFTY PENCE OR SOME SHIT) ITS EASY. ITS NOT EVEN SOMEONE ELSES.....THE WORST THAT WILL HAPPEN IS IT WILL BREAK AGAIN AND YOU CAN FIX IT THE SECOND TIME BETTER AFTER YOU LEVEL UP.


FUCK THE ENGLISH VERSION OF EARNIE BAILY
