    You should include a photo of the break but assuming it is a wood guitar get a high quality wood glue. Be sure the surface is clean, get glue all over both surfaces, get the neck exactly lined up, and apply constant pressure to the glued break (preferably with one or more clamps) forcing the break back together. Again, be sure it is exactly lined up the way it was before it broke. Wood glue is usually water based so carefully clean up any excess glue with a damp cloth.

    this is a job for a proper luthier [a person who makes and repairs stringed instruments] ... it has to be done exactly correctly, using the right glue, clamps, and pressure, or the guitar's sound will be off permanently

    I would use two pack epoxy. There is no stronger adhesive. Roughen both surfaces with sand paper and brush off any dust. That will ensure a good bond.

    Try something like Gorilla Glue, or if you are old school epoxy which you have to mix together.
