    Just received a used 2017 Collings 01 that has blown me away as far as tone, playability and overall comfort. Only issue is that there’s a center seam separation/hairline crack from the bridge to the binding. There’s also some slight separating in the center seam between the sound hole and bridge with no split in the finish.

    I’m torn because I truly want to keep this guitar as I was able to snag this guitar at 1000 dollars less than new. So far, Ive placed a d addario 2 way humidifier in the sound hole and my music space is at 50%RH. Should I look into getting it repaired and or return it? Any input is much appreciated.

    At the very least, I would get an estimate for the repair, and a diagnosis of how likely it is to spread or multiply. At that point, you can make a better determination of whether or not to return it.

    Yeah, I'd hit up collings on it.
    They're a great bunch, and responsive, they can guide you.
