Hi all,
This is my headstock repair for a Slammer by Hamer.
Anyways, it fell, it broke, I glued it back, removed the original paint and slapped some rosewood veneer, finished that with shellac, inlaid an oak leaf from MOP, drilled the tuner peg holes and...that's it.
I paid $80 for the guitar, but I like it a lot...

Great job. But the best thing about looking at the pix was finding out there are a lot of Asian girls anxious to flirt with me as well as many Russian women who dig older men. Who knew? Be still, my beating heart.

Wow, nice job. I’ve done two headstock repairs with very good results, but I didn’t worry about the looks so much.

I also have ne done by the 12th Fret in Toronto on a 62 Melody maker. THAT is a nice job with a little sunburst concealing the repair.

Hey, thanks for the kind comments...
@ Rozz - what do you mean? Dod you get spam? In that case, sorry, unintentional...
@aC2rs - rosewood is a pain to work with, I had to finish it with shellac as anything else would just not stick...
