I noticed the long scratch on the back of my guitar today. As I looked closer I noticed it is pretty deep. Does it look like a crack to you guys? If it is what can I do to fix it?

Thanks Andrew

i wouldnt worry if it was on my guitar, if it opens up run some glue into it, i am guessing thats what others would say

Ok thanks mux I will probably glue it after I finish sanding. All depends on how much it opens up I guess

don't wait until you've finished sanding...

wick that bastid full of water thin CA right now and then level it off as you sand

You'll be able to tell a lot better than we can with a picture. Run you finger down it and you can feel if it's a crack or not. I'm with Shane in that the first thing I thought was that it's a joint, glue line. Definitely take his advice and fill it now so that you can sand away any evidence before you get too far along, assuming it's a crack.

Ok guys thanks. It is a one piece body so I'm guessing its a crack. I will fill it with super glue and sawdust when I get home from school. I could feel the crack barely but I will glue it to be safe.
