Reason, Crazing of celluloid from 'gassing"
Note" Celluloid Peghead
overlay has "Gassed out" and shows severe crazing
Renee can remake this if the neck is sent to her either

It is commonly seen on older instruments that utilize
Straight neck, good action
Will benefit from a good cleaning and fresh setup/fret
