    That guitar looks hollow, but obviously from the crack it's only partially so. Is the wood solid back there?
    It appears to be mostly a finish work challenge. Glueing the crack is easy, matching the color and painting/ buffing is the challenge.
    If it's not a an expensive guitar, I would likely use a black epoxy product to fill it, sand, fill as needed, wet sand , buff etc. It will likely show though, but not be as bad.
