My BC Rich Neck is broken

Hey guys! I need your advice about this situation. My Warlock falled down last night and now the neck is broken. Not complete but I can "move" the head a few millimeters. The tuning retained but I think the split will continue with the time.

Now, I donīt know what I should do. I donīt think that it can be pasted because the break is not "open". Which options do I have?

I would take it to a local luthier/guitar repair guy and find out what he has to say... More than likely they can fill the crack.

You can get replacement necks. Is it a set neck or bolt-on, because set necks are a lot more work to replace. I'm not sure about a repair to that area of the neck though as that is where the two pieces of wood join on some BC Rich's, but I can't tell from the pictures
