Neck pocket cracks
So, I was wondering from all the original FP, BFP, LNG, DY etc 88,89 jem owners..... this neck pocket crack problem.
Do you think that these small cracks that appear are just finish cracks or much more serious, like the beginnings of Steve Vai's Evo. That guitar is basically stuffed.
I missed out on an original FP on Abay the other night that was in great condition with small cracks in the neck pocket. Is it worth it to keep looking out for one or does the age of these and the obvious neck problem pretty much make them eye candy only and not for use when playing live?
also.... do I have to look forward to my 7VWh doing this in the near or far future..... it's only 2 years old.
How big a problem is this?
I only learned of this problem from all of you in here, so I'd be interested in what some of you owners of the old Jems think.
