Suspected Neck Repair On Jem BSB

Looking to buy a JEM BSB but after requesting photos I noticed what looks to be like neck damage or a repair between the locking nut screws . What do you guys think?

It's obvious there is a crack; the only way to say if it has been succesfully eepaired or not is by inspection, forcing the headstock under stress and see if the crack edges separate or not.

I doesn't looked repaired to me but definitely will need repaired. Easy fix except having to match the stain after sanding out the repaired area. Surely a good negotiating point for lower price.

IMHO I wouldn't buy it and I'd wait to get another one with no crack..

THIS^^^^

If your not looking for a pristine wall hanger, this could turn out to be a killer deal. Again, an easy fix for any skilled luthier/tech.

He asks 1250£, common man, be realistic, they don't sell for 800£ without a cracked neck.
