    Replacing EBMM Majesty's Body

    A few days ago,I dropped my Majesty(Arctic Dream) and its body got cracked.
    I heard that Music Man offers replacement body/necks for the Majesty model.

    Does anyone have Majesty 's body replaced?
    How much does it cost?

    Ouch!

    You mean you damaged the paint? Or the body is actually cracked?

    Either way- give MM a call directly and ask about it. (Link is in my signature.)

    As a neck through design, getting a new body or neck is not really possible.

    Whoever told you that was in error I'm afraid.

    The Majesty is a neck-through. From the middle of the body up to the headstock is all one piece of mahogany. It is inserted into basswood "wings" to make the complete guitar shape.

    You will have to source a way to repair it instead.

    FWIW, it's not just the Majesty, no neck-through can have its body replaced,

    Not to add insult to injury but for this exact reason is why I prefer bolt on necks.

    If EBMM is unable to repair the guitar, let me know. I have a friend in Tennessee, that does amazing repair work. He may be able to help you out.

    thanks everyone.
    im japanese and my english is poor, sorry.

    i live in japan but i didnt know who should i contact at first, so i contacted Ernie Ball Music Man Customer Service.

    They said " We'd recommend inquiring with our distributor to start. Through the factory we don't offer refinishing services, but we do offer replacement body/necks for the Majesty model. It could be possible that the distributor may know of a shop that offers refinishing in your area. "

    i know that Majesty is a neck-through, so i think it is unable to be replaced its body.

    I will take my Majesty to the shop where i bought this beautiful guitar in a few days to get repaired.
    but i dont know how much it will cost...

    Ouch. That hurts. Definitely get some strap locks for that bad boy when you get it fixed.

    It can be repaired for sure, but it may not be a "spot" paint job if that paint is the color shifting type. They may have to repaint the entire guitar. It might be expensive to get it back to stock but it can definitely be repaired by a pro.

    Oh wow... Don't think I've seen something like that happen before. All of my guitars, from ones I paid $400 to up to ones I paid $2000 for, they all have locking straps. If you don't want to mess with the guitar, there are ones that don't require any removal of the original strap buttons.

    It's probably not intentional but it's kinda uncool to tell someone to get locking straps when they probably feel crappy that their guitar broke... I feel really bad for him.

    I do, too. I'd be devastated if it happened to one of mine. Maybe it came off wrong, but I was just making a suggestion to help him prevent it from happening again.

    Wow. I guess with all the knob holes and the cavity, that makes a natural fault line on the guitar. One hit the wrong way and blammo. So sorry to see this. I wish you good luck getting it repaired -- it's a great guitar and deserves to be fixed.
