Universe Scarf Joint Separating?

Not sure. On the high E side where it runs lengthwise equal to about between the first and second frets there is a visible groove. Which I can also feel with my finger. Should I stop worrying, or continue to worry?

if it's still under warrenty i'd get the place of purchase to re-place the neck,if it's old or 2nd hand have a word with LGM or EKG about fixing it up,a pic would be handy to see the damage tho

Your 3rd option is to send the neck off to ibanez and get a replacment ($500+) as i was qouted 450 for a bk body and 750 for a vwh neck ... Be warned the 3rd option is not cheap
