    So, my guitar's neck part is broken. Does anyone know how to repair it or get it repaired from somewhere? Pics are attached.

    Thanks :)

    The neck is not broken, only the fret board has come out.
    I believe this is easily repairable, why not check out some guitar shops around your place. Usually there is a guitar technician lurking around ...

    Just requires glueing.

    Indian weather does wonders... Some of them are terrible...

    It'd be advisable for you to go to a store and get the fretboard bound like the body from an experienced luthier... However, this can cost you some money... I am skeptical about the fact that simple gluing would help because it might heighten the higher frets compared to the lower ones and that's the opposite of what one wants on a guitar... However, this is a pretty recoverable situation and with luck, your guitar might sound the same....

    May I know what guitar is that?

    It's a hobner. And how much do you think it'd cost??

    Binding the fret board is not worth it on a hobner and will be costly in comparison to the guitar's price... however if you feel that you are really in love with your guitar and willing to spend a few, go ahead..
