hmmm dunno man, show us a picture and we can really tell you what to do with it... but from the sounds of things... it'll just LOOK good on your wall.

I'd buy a new one (might cost less than repairing) but then again, I am a n00b when it comes to the designing and maths of guitars - I'm just a theory freak.

Ask Afro or EMB. :)

hmm not sure i understand...

you know the back plate is just the piece of plastic covering the pots?

Maybe a picture would clarify it, but i dont really understand..

If it is fixable you are going to need a special clamp or two.
