    Hi all,

    My poor-old Jasmine ES50C took one fall too many today and the neck broke, pretty good.

    I know she is not worth much but I thought it might be a good project for myself and my daughter (she knocked it over last!).

    I have some wood glue and a couple of C-Clamps I hope will do the job. Not sure I want to invest much more. Is there a tutorial for this sort of thing?

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    Not sure if I would have the courage to approach that, with the truss rod sticking out and all. Tried wood glue on a purfing repair once on an old Fender acoustic bass; did not hold. Also repaired a snapped off head on a very old Silvertone acoustic using epoxy 2 part glue. Wasn't pretty but has held up well.
