Small Headstock Crack

Recommended Posts

I am new here, and apologize for just jumping in. I picked up a guitar in Japan, where I live, dirt cheap because of a headstock crack. Guitar repairs here run several times more than the same stateside, so I am going to jump in and do it myself. "How hard can it be?", he mutters.

What I have found on the neck refers to larger cracks, or suggests completing the crack by breaking the neck. Seems a bit extreme for what looks rather minor yet.

I would remove the string and properly clamp the guitar after glueing. For the glue, I will have to ask around a bit here. Possibly a hot glue.

One worry is how to get enough glue into a crack that size. Will I be able to?

Any advice is appreciated. I will post an image when I figure out how. :D
