    That sort of break is very easy to repair. Any competent luthier can repair that rather easily. All it takes is putting epoxy in the break and clamping it until the epoxy cures. Done carefully, the break will look like grain in the wood.

    I assume it comes with the tuning machines?

    Hello. I build acoustic guitars. 24 hour epoxy will repair the crack and you will be rocking in 24 1/2 hours (after reassembly)

    its comes with everything this is just to show the break,
    so would you buy this guitar? does it affects the sound somehow?
    thanks (:

    I have basses with exactly that repair.
    In my experience, the repairs are hard
    to see and hold up 100%.

    Easy to fix. Will not affect the sound in any way.

    The controls - si one missing a knob or is the shaft broken? (Again, easy to fix, just call Music Man and order the part from them).

    Take the photos to a good repair place to get an estimate of the cost.
