Custom Built Jem Body Old Heel

Hey everyone I just remembered that i have a old jem guitar body thats 8 years old. Its made of out brazilian jatoba. It is routed for a orignial floyd rose and H-S-H. Only issue is , there is 2 cracks in the body ones just a surface crack the other is in the lower cutaway and goes in about 1 inch into the cutaway and is about a little less then a quarter inch deep. I kno this is kinda useless with out pics but the body is in chicago at my parents house and im stationed in louisiana. My mom found it and called me to remind me bout it. But the cracks are from the weather change as it was in my basement,. The cracks seem to be solid, and ideas advice. Oh one last thing, the body has about 10-15 coats of tung oil on it , THANKS!

It'll probably be fine but I wouldn't take a chance! I would just buy another body.
