Just noticed this on my ‘18 R8 (VOS) by the heel joint, the vertical line descending downward where the neck meets the body...I’m not even sure if it’s a crack at all, it’s smooth to the touch. Help ease my paranoia and tell me this is normal :run:

Most probably a little bit of glue squeezout that wasn't cleaned up. Glue never takes stain or grainfill the same way raw wood does.
That or its a little excess grainfill thats not been tidied up

You are pressing down on the strings too hard and it is causing the neck to seperate from the body.

Use less pressure and remamber Les Pauls are delicate instruments.....
