    Your probably correct. It could be an internal check that was not evident untill the wood was turned in to a stock. Since the internal stress is changed in the stockmaking practice it may have always been there.

    I would fix the crack before it gets any larger and refinish the stock.

    The only other thing it could be is poor wood selection.
