2002 Epiphone AJ-18S

The back of the head shows the gold Schaller tuners I installed (Epiphone removed the original tuners before they sold the guitar - I also had to install the nut, saddle and bridge pins). I repaired the break and inlaid a "volute" - which is an exterior brace - to stiffen the join, then I repainted the back of the head black, rather than try and duplicate the original sunburst.

Recently, this repair came apart, as I was almost sure it would. So I am working on a new neck for it. Stay Tuned...
