    It's not expensive,'s one of those things that is a serious structural deal. Basically the wood underneath the block has split open and forced the inlay to pop you're dealing with a split fingerboard. I'd stay away.

    I didn't think p basses came with block inlays. Are you sure it's the original neck?
