Good morning all -

I received this Westone roughly 13 years ago.
I am looking to replace the neck on it - as it is cracked. I am not too sure what the exact model is - however - based on the images on this site i believe it may be the DANA III. This could be incorrect. Does anyone know where I can find a neck and other hardware for the guitar? Possibly pickups too. Thank you for your help in advance.
 
The serial is 9003927

Hi and welcome. Hello Wave

That's very unusual to see a separation along a scarf joint. I'm assuming it's not the actual joint which has broken away but the wood above it? Those mounting bolts through the neck have likely weakened the area allowing this to happen.

That's a rough finish on that crack repair and looks like it may not have been clamped properly after gluing, but the first consideration is, "Is it stable and playable?" If it is I wouldn't worry about it too much.

If the aesthetics bother you (they would me) you might spend some time in-filling, leveling and matching the finish.

If this is a Dana model (I'm not certain that it is --perhaps Chad knows??) your odds of finding an original replacement neck are about as good as locating rocking horse poo. I would hang on to it and finish it properly.
