I’ve been looking for an electric guitar to play around with, but I didn’t want to invest a bunch of money. So…. I figured it was time to take advantage of my woodworking skills.
I picked up this slightly used Epiphone Les Paul on eBay for $124. The guy was basically selling it for the electronics because it had fallen off the stand and the headstock was busted clean off. A little research indicated it was repairable, so now I’ve got a very decent player at a bargain price.
There was no way to completely hide the crack on the plastic overlay, but some filler, sanding, and lacquer on the back of the neck made the repair nearly invisible. All in all, a pretty easy fix.
