What is the success rate of repairing a broken neck on an acoustic guitar?

I"m sick about it in the nth degree: it's not mine, it's vintage. I was returning it this evening: I cannot believe this....feeling like vomiting I feel so awful.

Owner might not want a repair job and I can ill-afford a luthier or replacing it. ugh. But I have to, somehow, I know that.

Depending on how it is broken it might be repairable.
I have a 1121 with a repaired neck.
And I have done repairs before.

So, it is possible.

That Girl... no, don't vomit! The stomach acid will wreck it even worse. If you can, post a picture in the BFLG forum and maybe someone there can give you an idea on a solution.

I don't think that returning a broken or even repaired guitar would be acceptable to most owners. You should be prepared to provide an equivalent replacement (instrumental or fiscal).
