    And why I hate Gibsons 17 degree pitch

    This is what happens when you combine a 17 degree pitch angle and someone that did not loosen the strings or make sure there was padding inside the case and shipped in very cold weather. I wish Gibson would go back to the dreaded 14 degree pitch like on my bastard Norlin guitar.

    Even though that's a Gibson, that would suck on any guitar.

    The good thing is that it finally happened, and it looks like a fairly clean break, so you should be able to repair it and it will be stronger than before.
