I'm on the hunt for a cheapie for a friend - got a line a Cort for silly cheap but can't play it first. Seller is clueless - what do we think? Finish crack or something more sinister?
I think so, yes. Remain interested in assessments of the crack.
This.If I had to guess, I'd say finish crack from stress by the tuners; notice how there's 2(3 if you count that long one as 2) that seem to come from the peg holes. Plus, and this is an unscientific guess here, I feel like it would be REALLY hard to have a structural crack in that matter that wouldn't have just taken a chunk off.
There's a million cheap guitars for sale on a given day.
