So, I found a cool 60s melody maker (the same my dad used to play) nearby and I'm going to see it tomorrow. It definitely was used, but i got the price down to 1k before I go see it tomorrow. I'm mainly worried about the dinged up neck. The finish is checked basically all over, which is OK, but I'm worried specifically about the checking at the scarf joint. If there is checking here, does it mean there are underlying issues with that joint, or is this just kinda expected at this spot because of natural tension and age? I do want to play it, and not just have it on the wall, so any input is greatly appreciated!!
