    I've had mine since '98 and there were no craks in the body of the bass. You should go to the store you bought it from and if it's under warranty, demand a replacement. Or contact the Epiphone company, I think recent Epiphone intruments have a Lifetime Warranty.

    If not, go to a music store and let a technician look at it to see if ithe crack could get worse or if it will affect the tone of the bass.

    I hope some of this helped.
    Peace.

    Very good advice Mr. Afro. Epeiphone does have lifetime warranties on their instruments that have been built semi-recently. If it is not the product of abuse, then you should be just fine with that. They make take a while, though. I remember gibson/epiphone being quite slow. Gibson being the worst.
