that's what i was thinking

Thats the last think you do. What you do do is simply glue the old piece back in place if you had the sence to keep them or if not you just get your block plane and plain those two tips dead flat then you would have to join two new bits of wood in place and re-shape. If the finish was tranlusent care would have to be taken to fine wood thats grain matched that on the guitar. Then its a case of touching in to match the original finish or completely refinishing.

Whenever anything break always keep whats damaged right down to the smallest splinter.

i would imagine that it's kind of smashed, not just broken off you know? like if you were to pound a broomhandle into the ground or something. it's soft now? i dunno how to explain.

but listen to adds not me, he's the luthier.

Yeah i didn't think Fender made a 51'... they have a 52' though.

BC Rich guitars aren't really that great, and most people know it. If its a platinum it might be worth the repair, but anything below that (I'm guessing its a bronze model though). Just keep it, and play it. You'll regret selling your first guitar later anyways.
