Broken headstock & upgrades :: 1992 Gibson Les Paul [7.7 lbs]
Another Gibson, another broken headstock. The neck break was repaired along with an odd break in the control cavity. While the guitar was in the shop, the player decided to make a few upgrades, including a Tonepros bridge, amber bell knobs and cream appointments (pickup rings, switch plate, output jack plate - all originally black). The player will be swapping out the Dimarzio "Mega Drive" (DP107) bridge pickup himself for a classic '57. In order to cosmetically match the new pickup, the player had me install a gold cover on the neck pickup.
Below is the headstock repair. We opted for no finish touch ups, so I just wet sanded and buffed the area to improve the feel.
