No you shouldn't.was wondering if I should be able to feel the seams on the three piece top ? I can see them and feel them.
Thanks for your information, if it wasn’t for the flaw with the seams it would be almost in perfect condition , I have no idea what it would be worth.Whatever it is about that era, yeah, you can sometimes feel the glue joints on the top and at the wings of the headstock, etc. Often times, it just seems that the wood has shrunk/settled a bit and a butt of a ridge remains along the joint. And if everything is still perfectly tight, then NBD. That having been said, I have seen ones that have started to warp away a bit and actually separate. Unless there's a water damage issue, something that old is probably stable at this point and those seams aren't really structural. As long as that center section of the top is securely glued to the back, it doesn't really matter what's happening either side of it the the other two pieces lie.
All that having been said, still something that poses at least a little extra depreciation over one with nice tight, clean, smooth joints throughout.
