Recently I noticed a crack on the neck of my 20 years old Ibanez RG. I'm not sure how it happened, I never knocked it over and never messed with the truss rod.
Days ago I was switching strings for a higher gauge but the tremolo springs were dead so the bridge went way up and I just bagged the guitar like that for maybe a day or two, until I got the new springs. A few days later I noticed these two cracks on the neck, just below the headstock. Could this have been created by the high action caused by the dead springs?
And is it worth trying to fix it? The cracks are too small to insert glue in them so I would have to clamp the neck. But clamping it enough to get the glue in there might increase the cracks even further, so I don't know if I should go for it or just ignore it and keep playing until it gets worse, and only then do something about it.
I know that taking it to a luthier is the most sensible thing to do but I'm not a very sensible person. Just enough to get this posted.
