Crack in Jem7v ebony fretboard

Dear all,

Just got a Jem 7v and notice a long thin line on the ebony fretboard on the second fret (please see the pics).

I am not sure if this is a crack a this is my first ebony fretboard guitar. Can anyone tell me if this is a crack?

Re: Crack in Jem7v ebony fretboard

That's unlikely to be a crack, especially since it doesn't continue into the third fret. I'm sure it's a scratch in the board from the factory.

Thanks for the prompt reply. I was thinking if it was the pores of ebony, but seems that the line is kinda long to be the pores.
