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