They made that guitar from wood that was not fully seasoned. But if that is all of the problem I wouldn't worry. If it bothers you it can be filled with hard wax polish.
It lines up with the truss rod, so I guess that would be a possibility. I’ve seen that same hairline crack before. Wonder if the truss rod channel creates a weak spot in that direction?

I dunno... that kind of crack can totally be from an impact.

It's not a problem... but it's a very fixable bargaining chip.

Googled another one… SG, looks much newer.

Over-tightened truss rod?

Tightening truss rod without loosening strings first?

“The neck is all as tight as it will go and it still has some bow in it.”
