That is such an easy fix.

viewtopic.php?f=7&t=12500

Just glue with Tite Bond glue, get it down into all the fibers.
Clamp it tight with a C clamp, (first put some wood or cardboard under the feet to protect the finish).
Squeeze out much of the glue and wipe off.
Next day, take the clamp off and wipe remaining glue off the finish with a damp paper towel.

The guitar will be ready to string up and play after 72 hours

Making the crack disappear from the finish, well that does take skill.

Ouch. But, as Buffalo Bill said, that is an easy repair. And it looks like that's a fairly clean break, which makes things even easier. Definitely a shame, though. I always hate seeing broken headstocks.

Did you ever get that fixed? It's a clean break, so hopefully it was easy for you!

Yeah, I'm curious about this one, too. Hope it turned out well.

So, did what I could, backyard luthier 'n all, and here's the result after stringing it up with some new strings.

So, for the price of having someone professionally fix it, I got this, gawdy I know, buit the cheapest steel body I could find... and I'm amazed at how muich better it sounds than the wood body

Personally, I much prefer Johnny Walker scotch.
So, after a few ounces, I'd have to polish that off with some steel wool. :lol:

I'd rather Jim Beam, and not because I have a professional association with them ;)

And you'd be better off with bondo, that's engraving there. 8)

I like the new one.
The glueing should have been reinforced with a couple of self tapping screws. I've fixed a couple of guitars like this in the past and it worked very well.
That way you'll have two resos! :D :roll:
