Neck Cracks or Lacquer Crack

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

Just checking my Gibson Explorer which has been in its case for too long and noticed I believe where the neck was joined to the body lacquer cracks . Could anyone confirm if this is the likely to be the case or if I need to repair it

 

 

 

Thanks for your info and help in advance post-43187-053156500 1548840565_thumb.jpg

 

All the best

Im not an expert nor do I have the guitar in question in my hands but I would say that is just lacquer crack. If the guitar plays well and functions as expected just keep taking care of it and leave it alone. If you need a repair for something like a neck crack or the neck is somehow unglued - which I think is highly unlikely- you’ll know when that happens. But otherwise enjoy it as long as you can. Best wishes

Hi

 

Are there any other Explorer owners who can shed a light on the construction is the neck glued on which would explain why this 18 year old guitar has this cracks on the heel all the way

 

Thank you

Hi

 

If the attached is the normal way Explorer necks are secured to the body that would explain the cracks. Can anyone confirm if possible

 

Thank you
