A buddy of mine gave me a early 60’s SG Junior that must have had a broken neck at one time and someone attempted to fix it and it has to be the nastiest repair job I have ever seen on a guitar, they cut the neck and tried to replace and carve a headstock out of which looks like pine. I was wondering if anyone knows who could build me a accurate looking neck for this guitar as I do not know if what is left could be repaired, I think it would be a cool guitar once it is fixed so if anyone out there has any ideas please let me know.

You might try Tom Bartlett in Guelph or Kim from Historic Makeovers in Florida.

Both of these guys have the skills and experience.

Did Pete Townsend ever own it by chance?
He used to like P90 equipped SGs. :D

A picture or two would be really nice and very helpful. I'm sure there are people in Alberta who could help you and the guitar is for sure worth saving.

Pictures would be a great help.

One question I have is if the fingerboard is still intact/salvageable?

I don't typically offer my services as I can barely keep up with building my guitars; so I'm not saying I'd do it, but I'd be willing to look at the current state and give you my opinion on a repair like this, seeing as how I only specialise in guitars of that era, I have a soft spot for 'em. Otherwise I wouldn't typically chime in.

I'm also in Alberta BTW.
more pics of my work linked here if interested.
