Another Gibson headstock break :: 1992 Gibson Les Paul

Yet another Gibson in the shop for a broken headstock repair.  Here we go again: strip the tuners, clean / align the joint, dry run test clamp, glue & clamp ...

Some tips to help prevent head breaks:

  1. Use a properly fitted hard shell case for storage and transport (extra strategic padding for shipping too)
  2. Use a solid stand or wall hanger when not playing - no leaning it against an amp, chair, etc
  3. Unplug the cord when you set the guitar down
  4. Install strap locks to prevent accidental releases
