Just realized my bridge pickup is cracked. Is that bad? (pic)

Still plays and sounds fine. Is this a big deal, or is going to become a big deal in the future, or should I just not worry about it?

TBH it could've been cracked for years and I just noticed now.

I guess if it's still working its all good. The coiled wire should hold it together.

It is the first sign that the demons are breaking free of their eon long prison. Bury it, bury it in the back yard before it is too late.

Better relic the whole guitar to match it.

Nah, not a huge deal as long as the pickup still sounds ok.

Those lines between the pole pieces are meaningless. Play on.

Itīs a little scratch, nothing wrong. You should get worried if the pickup doesnīt work
