    Hello everyone! I recently played a show and accidentally dropped my guitar on stage. The guitar fell flat suffering from minor dents and scratches. However, there's this hairline crack along the neck that's causing some concern. The guitar is an ESP LTD EX-360. It is a set neck. I'm concerned that this hairline crack runs deeper then on the surface. Running my fingers over the crack, I can feel the slight separation. On the other hand, it still plays well. I'm considering going to a local tech to check the neck. Here's a picture

    Any tips for any home remedies, repairing or hiding the crack would be much appreciate! Thank you!

    It should be looked at by someone to be sure as am only seeing the surface but I suspect it is a finish crack. Typically a fracture would run across the wood and not along the endgrain edge of a joint.
