Not really enough info here--could you put some pictures on photobucket or another hosting service and post some links so we could have a look-see?

Is this a new 330? If it's under warranty we can take care of it.

Ben,

My 360/6 (circa 2004) has some very feint hairline cracks around the neck set, I'm sure that this is probably normal after some playing as the joint must strain slightly ?

Actually it's probably hairline cracks in the CV around the joint I guess ?

What is the joint set with ?

Do you dress the outside of the joint with anything ?

Doesn't worry me none..

Jim, I wouldn't worry about anything. The neck tongue is glued into the body and there is no special dressing around that area, the finish coats go on just like that.

Cracks and lines forming after time are common with conversion varnish and the climate you live in and how you store your 360 do affect that. Wood is hygroscopic meaning that it absorbs and releases moisture and you can imagine this will do funny things to a guitar since wood swells and shrinks underneath the finish.
