I said glue but I forgot about all that duct tape my in laws bought after 9/11.
Pair it with this one...
I haven't seen an instrument equipped with the Automatic Headstock Ejection option for a while.
I'd rather use it for firewood, EBO's are the worst sounding basses I've ever played. I had a Gibson back in the 70's and it sounded like a huge fart.
Well played sir!
Fixed one like that for a friend once. Big PITA but his was vintage and worth doing. That one? Nah.
thats almost worth sig'ging
Somebody convert it to a headless, that would be interesting.
PS- I'm surprised that i did not give up on bass because an Epi EB-0 was my first bass. Its tone makes me want to barf.
That's almost not worth repairing. I do antique restoration and furniture repair for a living, and that is probably one of the most nightmarish breaks possible on an instrument. Not to mention the fact that the quality of the wood had to be piss poor for it to snap so cleanly across the grain like that. Glue alone won't due. You'd need rock maple dowels or metal rods for reinforcement with epoxy or poly based glue. Getting everything to line up right would be a major pain in the ass and it is unlikely that it would ever be perfect. If it were a Gibson with a set neck it would be worth repairing, but on an epiphone I'd use the neck for scrap or firewood.
how is it "brand new" but it doesnt have the original tuners and a bunch of parts are missing?
take the truss rod out and replace it with a knife.. set the tang into the headstock.. BAM!... weapon!
not a biggie...you can just buff that s#@* out.
Bolt on neck....Get a cheap cost Rondo neck, maybe a tweak or two with a router and resell the silly thing on Ebay as a one of a kind custom built Epifender clone. (think Franken Fenderbird)
He probably snapped the neck attempting to change the tuners, then found it was much easier after the head was removed.
+1 for making me spray my drink.
