If the guitar was in Nevada(dry climate), and not humidified enough, then some small amount of shrinkage of the side could occur, causing the visible separation between the side wood, and the plastic binding. Then again,
nitrocellulose lacquer finishes shrink over time, because of the outgassing of solvents(causing checking), that could be contributing too(I believe Gibson still uses lacquer as a finish).. Just my opinion!
