Yeah, no. Even when I was 16 years old I would never have done that to a guitar.

A choice between a trip to the trash or a trip to the work bench.

When I was -young- I had a guitar with a broken neck. I first glued it.Then I found a piece of 5mm flat iron with a perfect matching angle in the middle. I excavated the neck from the rear side so that the iron would fit in the wood, filled the rest with epoxy and sanded and polished the surface. Because I only had clear epoxy it looked strange but was quite stable.

Plastic bowls, aluminum necks and finger boards, etc. Many have said these are just wrong. Assuming this wasn't an otherwise valuable guitar, the owner likes it and now has a playable guitar, so what? Besides, it's not badly done and has a bit of a steampunk flair to it.

In any case, the damage may have been otherwise unrepairable.

Creative DIY Lutherie is GOOD.
Here is a homemade splice on my 1121 headstock (I did not do this);


Here is a creative job of Sanding the bridge to allow for lowering action;


And, even tho I had thought about it, this does NOT have a pickup installed;
