Hard to tell from the photo if it’s a lacquer check or a scratch. I’d have to think it’s not a crack. Unless it took a fall or some other bad hit.

No, never dropped or hit hard. I just noticed it while wiping the guitar down and kinda freaked out.

I would freak out too. I have the same guitar. I looked at mine just to make sure there wasn’t a similar issue.

You missing the other crack.. the one just slightly at the 1 - 2 oclock positing running vertically down the neck. Or that a reflection?

I'm gonna go with reflection, but again, not my pic.

I caught that too, but it's a separator in the window reflection.

I have lacquer cracking on the cutaway side of the neck where the neck meets the body. It happens. That area is prone to that.

What's going on IN the cutaway? That looks like a couple dings and a crack.

Give em a break. Gibson went bankrupt. When they did they had to cut costs. So top dollar people went out the door. Gonna take some time to get lesser paid people to learn their craft. Considering, they're doin pretty well I think.
