Broken neck help

Discussion in 'Luthier's Corner' started by chalie, Jul 17, 2007.


  1. Hi guys,

    I am back here once again because of the sad storry and seek for advise.:crying:

    I bought a used Ric 4001 from my friend in the states and have my other friend carry the bass back for me to Thailand but I think the bass was dropped while transport and therefore it has a 2" crack at the upper of the neck (please see the pic).
    You would notice the crack well when you rerief the stings tension otherwise there will appear just a fine hair line. If you force the peghead back the crack gona open a bit more.
    There is also a very small open of fret board on the other side (next to the nut) which I don't worry much as this happens to all old basses.

    :rollno: I wonder how should I gule this open crack. If I should.

    Thank you once again for you kind advice.

    Chalie
