Are these cracks OK?

The guitar is a 1997 MIA. The rest of the guitar is in great shape and it has no issues. I'm going to bring it to a luthier soon, and I know you can't diagnose by looking, but wanted to get your thoughts on just that...a look.
Do they look bad? Anything I can do to test how bad they are? Are they fixable?

You could slot it and glue in a butterfly if you were afraid of the cracks ever recurring or getting deeper.

Yes, it is completely repairable, StratPlus97. That's not even close to some damage I've seen, and you've caught it before any wood has actually broken right out of your Strat. Should be a professional repair though.

Yes! I wish these guys would read the post! OP says he's going to take it to a Luthier yet they start dispensing advice on how to fix it! :thumbd:
