This is my first post on here, howdy! I have been playing electric bass for 18 years. I have always wanted a cheap upright to screw around with, I found a new cremona (I know...I can already hear the comments) a while back and it is filling that purpose. The problem is that I noticed recently that there was a crack in the back of the bass where the sound post is seated against the back. I do not remember banging the bass hard enough at any point to cause this to happen. My questions are: has anyone seen this happen before? will it get worse? I cannot really fix it with cleats as the post is pushing against it on the inside. obviously I am not going to spend any money to have this repaired by someone else but I have some limited lutherie skills I might try out on it. When I bought the thing I had to do quite a bit of work to it to make it playable , but now it is actually a pretty decent bang-around bass.
