Just got lucky sounds true.

Here it is after I stabilized the chippy paint area. I wicked thin CA glue into all the cracks and crannies, and then I use flexible thick gap-filling CA glue to level it out, then smoothed it out and buffed it a little bit. There's a change it could crack again, but I'm hoping it won't since I used the flexible kind, and also I'll probably round over the holes a bit more before I put it all back together. I didn't bother color-matching the original red paint because I wanted to get it done fast, and the whole repair will be hidden under the pickguard anyway. In hindsight, there really was no reason even to smooth it out and buff it as much as I did, but I had a little smoke on Friday night and got hyper-focused on it, so oh well.

I haven't yet decided what I'll do with all of it, and I might use the neck for something else and offer this body up for sale, so LMK if anybody might want it for a build.

Nice job!

I would love to see the body stay with the neck, but you do you!

Like I haven't. :whistle
