Hey guys,

I just noticed a crack in the finish on the neck pocket of my 2004 - 2006 Jackson DKMGT Dinky. This guitar stays in a hard Gator case right side up (playing position) when not in use.

I did some research and these types of finish cracks seem to be common on strat body guitars but I'm a bit paranoid and wanted some experienced eyes to take a look.

The first picture is an up close view. The second picture is zoomed out to give a better overall orientation of the crack.

So as the post title says, it's just a finish in the crack right? Haven't noticed any difference in tuning stability and it doesn't seem to flex at all. The angle seems a bit too straight and on a diagonal to be with the wood grain.

Thanks for your feedback!

Gotta be just a crack in the finish. There's so way a basswood body would split right there like that.

Ya thats a common thing to happen on bolt on necks. It happens from the wood drying out around the screw compressing and making a crack. This shouldn't have any effect on structure of the guitar or sound or anything. I'm sure there are ways to fix the finish to look like nothing happened.

Seems like every other one of my guitars has that crack...
