    Where is the crack? A seam separation at the lower bout is very common? Pix?

    Waiting for the owner to get home & send a pic but he stated no seam separation. Supposed to be only a very small crack on only the back. Just trying to get ahead by knowing how to correct. I know what I would do if it were metal but wouldn't want it to spread later if possible.
    Thanks in advance

    Yep, thinned hot hide glue worked into the crack by flexing it slightly.
