Step 3: Inspection of Damage
To determine if the break is worth fixing to your satisfaction and ability, inspect the nature of the break. As I said before, this break was about as clean as you can get. In the pics you can also see the line from my previous fix.
What interesting to note is that the previous fix held up just fine. The wood failed (again), not the old glue joint. But what that also tells me is that the wood on this neck is fairly weak and would split just as fast and clean if it gets dropped again.
The split paint and paint/wood interface might present a challenge depending on the guitar. But it this case, it did just fine with wood glue.
