Subject: Air or liquid bubbles on a guitar neck

Air or possibly liquid bubbles have formed on the neck of my 10-year-old Martin 000-28VS, around the 10th fret. The bubbles are yellowish and move when I press down on them. They're on the top side of the neck (when I'm playing. How worried should I be? Note: I bought the guitar used four years ago so it's not under the lifetime factory warranty

I've never heard of this before. I'll pass it on to a luthier friend of mine to ask him (a) what the cause is and (b) what the remedy might be.

a search on google "bubbles on guitar neck" produces many similar explanations which seem to provide a reasonable explanation for this phenomena. Off to repair shop for guitar I think.

It seems to be referred to as delamination. It is the nitrocellulose finish separating from the wood, which can happen for a number of reasons.
