Wood or Finish Crack?


Recommended Posts

Hello,

I bought a new guitar ,Sheraton pro, a couple of days ago and saw now that it has a tiny crack in the top part of the neck (around fret 12). Is this something to worry about or is it just a superficial crack on the finish. I've never owned an electric guitar so this might be a dumb, obsessive question, but I would appreciate it if someone who knows a bit more than me would let me know!

Thanks.

I don’t how much of these small imperfections you’re supposed to accept. For me as long as it doesn’t compromise the longevity of the guitars life and or the sound, I’m pretty much ok with it. I’ve heard about cracks that look fine… until you change strings. Scary stories

That's the litmus test to know it's a genuine Gibson when you buy a new one - if you start worrying about the smallest insignificant things, it's genuine 😉
