I was a bit surprised to note thata crack's developed in my Gitane - Running parallel to and just below the high 'E' string, it appears to start at the corner of the fretboard & travels about 3/4", ending at the rosetta inlays encircling the petite bouche.
Given this is an overbuilt, plastic-dipped hunk of plywood, I'm hoping that the crack is just in the finish. The top of the guitar's spruce, BTW, but I've no idea whether it's solid or a laminate.
Is there a simple way to determine whether this crack goes all the way into the spruce? Is this something that should (could) be fixed?
The cosmetic aspect doesn't concern me in the slightest, but I'd probably consider having it repaired if there's a chance it will spread and widen ~ or split in two when I'm playing one night!
I would really appreciate any advice you may have for me, thanks
