Filling cracks...

Filling cracks...
I've got a '80 Lead II here that I'm trying to refinish. Solid 3-piece ash body, weighs a ton. The problem is that the two seams between the ash pieces are starting to show. The body is still very solid and nothing is loose, but towards the ends of the body in the two cutaways and on the butt end there are small but visible gaps. Was wondering what to fill these with? Super glue from Stew Mac? Epoxy? Any ideas? There's no problems with integrity yet, but I'd like to fix this before it becomes a problem. Not too worried about not taking a stain or anything like that-just don't want to have the seams split, especially as this is a fairly rare Fender body. Thanks in advance,

Use epoxy. Super glue just isn't good enough. It's only good for drop filling a finish that's cracked.
