I'm no guitar expert, in fact, I don't even play, so please forgive my utter lack of knowledge....

I have a mid-late 1960s Fender Jaguar. It was my father's and it laid in the original case under his bed for 30 years or so. As such, its neck is severely warped. On top of that, my idiot cousin tried to do a restoration himself and he screwed it up even more. I guess my question is, is it possible to completely restore a guitar of this age and in this condition and get it back into playing shape? Thanks for any help. Much appreciated!

We'll need to see photos for a comprehensive assessment.

Since it's already been screwed up by the idiot cousin, a trip to a very good pro is in order.

But I'd like to see pics, too. 8)
