Years ago when I was working full time doing guitar repairs someone brought in an early 50's J45. The neck had cracked at the heel block at some point and someone fixed it by putting two long wood screws right through the fingerboard and down into the heel. Ugly as sin. After a proper repair you couldn't see that anything had been done from more than a foot away. I didn't understand why they didn't screw from the heel towards the fingerboard... I mean that's obviously still a janky repair but wayyy better than what they did do.
