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...

Looks good. What kind of adhesive did you use? It appears you had a nice clean break, which is good. I recently fixed a client's guitar which was missing several pieces - there's a thread on it on this forum.

Hey, I used plain old yellow wood glue, home depot brand, I think Leblanc... Pretty clean break, yes. The pain was finishing the rosewood... None of the usual finishes would stick to it. Then I read about shellac...
@SaucyJack - thanks!

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.

Very nice repair job, I really like the Rosewood plate that you added.
Looks great.

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...
