I accidently knock the neck of my Suhr on a wall, it wasn't that hard, but I noticed that there was a small finish crack on the neck pocket, the intonation wasn't off but is the wood harmed itself?
How can I repair the finish?

Unfortunate but pretty common with Bolt on necks, I hope you lifted the neck straight up and didnt try and pull it out. Put a small drop of thin crazy glue inside the neck pocket with the neck off near the crack, it will wick into it and stop it from spreading. 99% of the time it is the paint not the wood so I really wouldnt worry about it. It can also happend from shipping torture or bumping the neck, it is also a by product from getting the neck fit toooo tight which we try and avoid, a nice slip fit is good

This happens to most bolt on guitars I've owned/seen. Definitely a common occurrence that happens to any make.
