Default Headstock cracked

Hi,

My name is Átila and I'm from Brazil.
I intend to purchase a Ken Smith bass, serial number CR5M24894FK - attached photos.
The instrument has a crack in the headstock´s back and I would like information about the severity of the damage. Is it possible to recover it easily?
I would also like to know, if possible, the woods used in this instrument and in the other two ken smith I have, whose serial numbers are 5M119198L and 6M156700W.
Thank you.

Exclamation

Poor bass, humidity, sweat and salt air are all bad for a wooden instrument. It can be glued if you find someone that is GOOD or an Expert Luthier. Do it ONCE, as a second time will be nearly impossible id=f repaired poorly.
