So I picked up a Jackson PDX-2 Demmelition King V, with a damaged headstock. The repair was a horrible DIY attempt as you can see.
Nice huh? I posted on the Jackson site..and the suggestions were to cut it out along the wide open seam. I've been doing that, and it's soft in some spots, goes through easily in some spots does to what seems like air bubbles but most of it is HARD. I thought I'd try here as well, since i KNOW you guys know your shit (not saying the others dont) Does anyone have suggestions? Maybe a solvent that will soften the epoxy without harming the wood?
For what I paid I could probably find a new neck, maybe Jackson sells replacements. I wouldnt mind taking on this job myself though, to see if I can do an acceptable job on it.
Just keep cutting with a sharp knife till in separates then use a sharp blade to shave way the gunk. Make sure it's held in place tightly with something like a vice lest you slip and slice yourself open or end up cutting the guitar. Time and effort is all it takes. Solvents or chemicals will just do more harm than good. Might take a few hours to get rid or it all but once you do, you should hopefully have a nice clean surface to be able to glue and clamp the piece back on properly.
