Today I received the Japanese made Jackson Warrior that I bought off Ebay. As I played it for the first time, I could just barely feel a slight imperfection on the back of the neck behind the first fret. Upon closer inspection, I found a very slight crack, at what I would call with my limited knowledge, the joint of the neck/headstock. I've inserted a photo wherein said crack is the 'darker' line on the left side of the 'arch' or joint. It doesn't really bother me a whole lot, and it certainly isn't effecting playability, but does this compromise the structural integrity of the neck? And if the answer is presently 'no', can this crack become a problem in the future? Thanks for the help!

Take it to a tech. It was probably glued together and the glue is coming loose.
