    Just curious what other Majesties out in the wild looked like. If this is an oddball guitar, I'll contact them. Not sure it can be fixed anyway. The PU selector position is OK.

    I honestly don't know if it is a crack and I pray it is not. I cannot feel any space in there. When I pull the trem up while putting my finger on the defect I cannot feel any defect movement.
