I just noticed a crack near the neck of my guitar. It was kinda screwy when i got it. So i brought it to a local shop to get it fixed. He put another spring in it and filed the high bone part a bit and tightened the truss rod. I dont remember if it was there before or not. its on the body part. where the neck and body connect. Its about half inch long and fingernail thick. shoud i jsut smash it and get a new one or will it be fine?

Well, is it a surface crack in the paint, or does it go into the wood?

Crack around the neckpocket may be from someone dropping the guitar!

...You're going to smash your guitar...because of a crack at the neck joint?

Pete Townshens used to smash his guitars to bits and glue them back together because they were on a budget for their first US tours. It's not going to kill it.

if you gently press on the neck near the crack and notice no movement/separation in the crack.
you should be fine.

also fyi, even if it was a real crack, you could still use the guitar until it buzzes at the crack,
and EVEN THEN, you could just fix it or worst case, get a new body.

strats are meant to be taken apart and mixed, not broken.
