    But, that's only step one.
    Step two is the epoxy dip.

    They say adding mass to the headstock increases sustain.

    In all seriousness, is something like that repairable, or is this a replace the headstock / neck up to the 4th-ish fret kind of thing?

    It could be fixed but would likely cost more than the value of the guitar.
    If it were a fresh break before all the foolishness thats done now it would have been alot easier to fix.
    Course the best thing would be take care of your guitars and prevent this in the first place.

    Mix up a tube of JB Weld and she will be fixed up right! I have seen it done on the headstock on an old Gibson flat top.

    A little BONDO filler and it will look like a seamless original.
