Re: Cracked top body - Takamine GS330S

I've tried to level out the top, but the longer crack in this picture (furthest from camera) is like really wedged tight. I'll try to describe it, but the center-top is wedged under the outer-top, if you get what I'm saying. Like if it wasn't for this stuck crack, I would be more willing to try and ...

Cracked top body - Takamine GS330S

Hi everyone, first post here:P I recently found out that my beloved and favorite guitar (Takamine GS330S) has some cracks on the top of the body.
