Re: Fine cracks

1. use the search function. 2 use the search function. 3. use the search function.

it's nothing to worry about really unless they are big cracks.

Re: Fine cracks

if its an old square heel neck then its a common issue that doesn't effect the playing of the guitar not sure about AANJ heels

Re: Fine cracks

No they are not big cracks, i was just a little concerned as i dont want it being an issue later down the road when if i could fix it now it wouldn't get worse.I do have a spare but this is my main axe.
And i "did" use the search function homobake .. no need to get all rightious on me , geez i just ask a simple question...

Re: Fine cracks

yeah, perfectly normal to have fine cracks on those necks with rear mounted locking nuts. It's also common to have neck pocket cracks. I have a 2007 RG550 that already has a neck pocket crack.. The thin ibanez paint finish mixed with a tightly pressed neck is bound to have these discrepancies eventually.
