I saw one in good shape sell for $2600 out here in cali last year. I wouldn't knock too much off for that little bit of finish cracking. They are the last LPs made in Kalamazoo, iirc.
Don't feel bad if your Jeff Beck signature Strat doesn't make you play like Jeff. I've been wearing Chuck Taylor high-tops for decades and can't do a layup, to save me.

If you want, drop fill some clear nitro on the crack; then sand flat and polish.

Yeah, it looks from here like a surface, finish crack. To determine if it is a crack in the body you would have to pull the pickup surrounds and look in those cavities.
Some contend that rock 'n roll is bad for the body & bad for the soul.
Bad for the heart, bad for the mind, bad for the deaf & bad for the blind.
It makes some men crazy and they talk like fools.
Makes some men crazy and they start to drool.
