Repairing the headstock of a Gibson Les Paul Studio guitar

The area where the headstock and neck meet is a real week spot on most guitars – especially on a Gibson. This Les Paul “Studio” took a bad fall at the club where the owner of the guitar, Andrew Gedacht from the group RBC, was performing.

I repaired the break, but some of the original wood on the guitar was lost and had to be replaced. In this video I show you how I grafted the missing wood back onto the neck of the guitar and how I refinished the guitar so that the repair was almostĀ invisible.
