    This arrived today. As you can see, it has excellent access to the upper frets...

    The area circled is broken off to the back edge of the neck pocket. it's being glued in now.

    It came from GuitarHuggers.com. Yes, it was sold as a basket case, with shipping, it was $46.00, so i figured 'why not'?

    Are you going to use Titebond or hide glue to reattach the neck?

    i've used Titebond for so long, it's difficult to change now. i know what to expect with it, and it's never let me down.

    Their inventory changes almost daily on 'project guitars', i hit the right time on this one for sure. Shipping to the lower 48 is always free, prices are reasonable, and they reply quickly to emails.
