Warwick Thumb Bass Headstock Repair

No inspection photo on this one, I forgot! You’ll have to take my word for it but this bass came to me with the break in the headstock having developed gradually, the owner suggested that when he bought it the headstock had been glued enough to disguise the break but hadn’t held and had opted up over a year or so.

To start with I needed to break the headstock under controlled circumstances so I could get glue into the fracture. As it turned out the first repair I attempted didn’t hold so I had to do it a second time. Thankfully this one was sound so I was able to continue with the setup and return this bass to a playable state.
