RG550 nut bolt cracks

Hey everyone.
I'm looking into a used rg550 and got one offer with the following cracks on the nut bolt back:

What are your thoughts on it? Seller says that you can't feel them under your fingertips.

You definitely would want to get that repaired. The neck is compromised, whether you can feel it or not. Once repaired properly it'll be super solid.

Re: RG550 nut bolt cracks

It already been repaired, otherwise it would still be split apart.

550's are common, unless it's incredibly cheap there's always another one.

Re: RG550 nut bolt cracks

Found out it's been glued a couple of years ago.
And yeah, it wasn't cheap enough to justify the buy.
