UV7BK Neck Crack

Hey all,
I'm gonna be getting a 1990 UV7BK pretty soon. i'll be getting it for cheap, but here's the thing:
That crack on the back of the neck/headstock. The owner is including a free extra neck, but im wondering if that'd be a easy thing for a luthier to fix, if i were to have it done professionally.

Hard to see the extent of the break from the picture, but depending on the break, a repairman could press the break open and inject glue, then clamp. You may also inlay splines to strengthen the area. Easier to do on a fresh break before any sweat, etc, seeps into the area.

I guess it depends on how cheap youre getting it

stupid question, the free extra neck, would that happen to be a UV neck?

Its not a break, its just a small crack.
As far as the neck, yes it is also a Uni Neck. Apparently the neck has been like that for a few years but plays fine. And the whole package was 600$+Shipping.
