I had an Ibanez Genesis that developed a neck pocket crack in the wild humidity swings of NE Kansas. I even had a humidifier that I ran all of the time in the winter to help with the problem. It was superficial in the finish only. I gave to my son. It doesn't affect the play at all. The Vintage (brand) V6 had/has a neck pocket crack on the high E side. It is the finish also and finally flacked off. It doesn't affect the play at all. I play it daily. If it wasn't on the high E side I would probably do something about the finish. Out of sight, out of mind.
