: My bass was recently knocked over resulting in a broken neck. The break is across the heal just after the bend. The break is very clean and no damage was done to any other part of the bass. Has anyone experienced this problem and had it repaired? Is it necessary to replace the neck or can it be effectively put back together? How much can I expect to spend for the repair?
Hard to tell without seeing it, but your description makes it seem to be repairable. The cost is hard to estimate since repairs vary so much and I'm not certain if the break is at the joint or the neck wood itself was broken. It doesn't sound too bad, but the only way to find out is to head to a luthier.
If you don't already have one you may wish to check my Luthiers Directory for someone in your area:
