There is no way Warmouth would warrant that. That crack is a user error. It cracked because the pilot hole was too small and the screw acted like a wedge to split the headstock.I’m pretty disappointed. Probably with myself, maybe with this Warmoth neck, I’m not sure. But I thought I was doing alright, being patient, pre-drilling the holes and going slow. It’s a new neck. Everything was going well until I put this last screw all the way in.
Is this little crack in the headstock going to be a problem? Is this something Warmoth would warranty? Or do I patch it up somehow?
Was really hoping to put the pieces of my partscaster together over the next couple weeks.

Take the gear off and put wood glue into the crack and put a clamp across the headstock to close it up while the glue dries. Then redrill the screw hole with a 1/16” size bit making sure to drill the depth of the screw and not drill all the way through the headstock.
