    Just bought this 2nd hand bass and I like it but noticed this issue on the back of the neck.

    The lacquer is fine but I’m concerned that this maybe the start is an issue with the neck structure ?

    I should add that the person I bought it from is happy for me to return it and has been very considerate.

    It looks like the remains of a branch from the living tree, like the branch sat right across the present finish running across the neck. I wouldn't be worried about it. Others more knowledgeable will chime in, I'm sure.

    Even if it was an issue, and I don't think it is, the 5 piece neck should protect you and prevent any trouble it might ever cause.
