Simple for someone experienced doing such repairs. Really depends on how badly "crushed". You did say, "slightly."rleitch said:I have a tenor sax with a slightly crushed neck receiver and a broken tightening screw. Does this sound like a simple repair or something trickier. I'm asking because I have to decide whether to go for a quick fix with a decent tech or to wait for the real deal guy in my town to have some free time.
Thanks in advance,
If it's really bad then it might be better to replace the receiver as it would probably end up stretched after straightening and would no longer have a good seal. The neck tenon could be expanded to make up for it then, but the price starts going up for all this added work.
