Neck joint crack on older Jems - What is this "neck joint cr

I've been hearing things on and off over time, mostly on eBay auctions for older JEM guitars (with original bolt on neck joint, not AANJ). I havn't heard it a large amount of times, but enough to get me wondering, becuase on my JEM7PBK, I notice somthing and I think it might be what the others were referring to. I posted a pic in the File Upload sectiono of this board, the pic is called "jemcrack1.jpg". The red line I drew in is running parallel to the crack. The crack is about 1.25" long, and is straight. It appears to be only in the lacker coat, but I'm not sure. I bought this guitar used, and I'm guessing that crack was there for a while. The guitar plays fine, that crack dose'nt make a bit of difference. I'm just worried that it will get bigger, and evolve to a larger problem. Is this the "neck joint crack" that I've heard about in the past? Thanks. I plan on taking it to my local guitar store too : ) Thanks again!
