"There are always loads around BUT 95% of the ones I've had (and I've probably had around 100 through my hands) needed a neck re-set to get them properly playable. They are great little guitar to learn how to do a neck reset as you can…"

Paul Craig replied to Wes's discussion SPLITTING HEADSTOCK HELP
"Your idea of opening the crack and filling it with a sliver of wood may put more stress on the wood around the hole and cause a new crack. Also, it may make the hole bigger causing a loose tuning key to rattle. This is the reason my guitar has a…"

"It's fix and add plate or time to strip off the wings and put new ones on with the grain in the right direction and possibly harder wood."

Paul Craig replied to Wes's discussion SPLITTING HEADSTOCK HELP
"That's why the plate is a good idea, to keep the problem from reoccurring in that spot or another. The plate would absorb the stress and possibly help with tone and sustain."

Paul Craig replied to Wes's discussion SPLITTING HEADSTOCK HELP
"I second the glue it and clamp it fix. I like Darryl's recommendation of adding the plate to either top or back since the grain is running the opposite way as Richard pointed out. That will reinforce the headstock against more splits later."

darryl kernaghan replied to Wes's discussion SPLITTING HEADSTOCK HELP
"As it,s a cbg , maybe you could re inforce it with a bit of 1/8 aluminium plate like i did on the one pictured when i thought i,d got a bit thin on the headstock, so added it to be safe"
