What am I looking at here?? Is there supposed to be a gap like that?? Lol. I confirmed it’s a ‘91 on here a couple of months ago but finally got around to taking a look under the hood. I’m seriously considering filling the gap with some epoxy resin is that crazy??

I think it's just the very end of the tenon. If you aren't seeing cracks around the outside of the neck joint, it's probably totally solid and fine.

Perfectly fine - and normal. Unnecessary epoxy will only devalue, nothing more.

I have a late split Diamond Burny RLC and its the same.
Nothing to fear. Consider its still longer than a short tenon Gibson and there’s nothing wrong with either of them.

Same as my 92ish Fernandes les paul.

Nice guitar btw. Have a 85 lc70rr that has a long tenon, this one feels just as solid.

I've had a few Burny' RLC's and all the neck joints have been like that, the tenon is chamfered to slide in easily but they do seem to have gaps on one side you could easily slip a string into. I'd love to see one with the fretboard steamed off to see if they really are badly fit. Never had any issues with them though so at least the glue's decent.
