Regarding the structure of this not-very-clean-break this is a great job :thumbs .

The screw takes it a bit too far, tho. Either he didn´t trust the glue or this is some magical sutain enhancer shrug . He could have sunk and than dowel it :roll .
Practice cures most tone issues.

Just a mm deeper and it could be closed with filler... "almost there" kinda.

Remove screw, redrill , glue in a dowel. One could even replace it with a plug to get the grain matched as close as possible.

Then again...she's still alive and I think it's appropriate to say "screw it, just rock that bee-atch"
I don't usually find a use for this smiley :flipa , but I like so there you have it.
