Thread: Headstock crack, opinions wanted

    I'm starting to think the same thing. The more I look at it the more it looks like it's just the finish. It looks like it runs into the bare wood but there is a little finish right at the edge and it stops at that spot.

    I disagree. I think that there is a spot where it's a finish crack but that for sure looks like it's a wood crack near the curve at the base of the headstock. Those cracks at the neck pocket are much larger and appear deeper than a typical finish stress crack. They look like they are into the wood too. Either way unless GC gave a good discount I would return it as most people will pass on that if you try to resell it OR they will ask for a pretty heavy discount. Even the people here saying it's no issue.

    I got it for $499 so I think I did alright on it. I have no plans to sell it so if it needs repairs in the future I'll have them done.

    Those neck pocket cracks are larger that the usual EBMM cracks. Have a luthier look at it to verify the integrity of the neck joint.
