    Great looking guitar! Plays great and looks great. Too bad it looks like the finish cracked on the sides of the neck pocket on day one. Think I should be concerned?

    Maybe that's a rosewood neck thing? My Luke III has those cracks on both sides as well. Very common with a tight fitting bolt on neck joint.

    what a stunning neck! and a great guitar!
    concerning the so-called stress cracks: just search the forum or the web. so many bolt-on-neck-guitars do have this. EBMMs do have it. My Morse and my AL do have it for 10+ years and the cracks didnīt change. I think itīs okay :-)

    EBMM - a guitar like no other.
    Even we mancave noodlers can appreciate the perfection that is an EBMM guitar.
