    What's up with that neck? I can't really tell from the pic I see on my IPad.

    Your skills are legendary, but a little more money might get you a better base to start from.

    He need's better pics. But, for $500, Serg you can do it!!!!! Worst case, you send it to PTC and get what you can't tackle done by them. (I really like the paint job done on theMike's 12/7 string project).

    $500 seems high for that mess, but I'd love to see what you come up with!

    Maybe ask for some clearer pics of that neck so you can see what exactly is goin on, but if I had to place my bet on who could fix it up...
    -I'm no expert, but it seems to work and I haven't electrocuted myself yet. Which is pretty much the standard I live by.

    I just realized you were talking about this guitar in your PTC thread, I'll totally back off if you're gonna do it right and send it to them.

    It looks like its been broken in a bunch of places and put back together with some snot and a metal bar as a brace! I'm so thinking I need to up the ante and start looking at thrashed Maryland-made guitars... How many jacked up SEs can one dude have?

    It does, but.... You've got a Milcom trem, MAYBE a Brazzy fingerboard, sweet switch, wafer 5way, winged tuners, and a pretty nice lookin' top to mess with...My mind is reeling with the possibilities.

    I'm on it!




    Just kinda thinking out loud here... I could:
    1- Try and re-repair the headstock. It looks as though it's been shattered, I'm imagining I'd need to put some dowels in the headstock and some additional support at the major break under the nut... If I could get it apart!

    2- Steam the neck off and replace it with something. What about a CE neck? I could get one, steam the fretboard off, replace it with the one from the broken neck, and have the worlds only quasi-1989 Custom 24 with a maple neck... OR... The only CE24 in the world with birds and a Brazzy fretboard.

    Hmmm...

    No worries Sergio…my expendable income at the moment is …uh…expended. I'd love to take it on, but I'm not sure how many alimony payments it would take to finish the project…LOL. If you are ready to tackle it, keep the progress pictures coming!!

    One could argue that since alimony is designed to keep somebody living within the life they were once accustomed to... as long as you were buying guitars instead of paying bills whilst married, you could skip a few payments to take this one on. Maybe Lesteban can back me up on this.

    That's nothing a few well considered dowels, some superglue, and a stiff drink couldn't resolve.
