1965 Epiphone Olympic :: headstock and heel break. This player was at a jam session where he backed up and tripped over some gear.  On the way down he caught his head on a counter top and was knocked out cold just before he and the guitar hit the ground.  Ouch! The next few nights will be spent fitting loose pieces and gluing the neck back together.  Once glued up, I’ll address some missing pieces and prep for finish repairs.  Nastiest neck break to come across my bench so far!
