True enough. Pretty serious crack- but it looks to me like a good candidate for a urethane glue repair. The good news is it's not a scarf joint, and the tension of the strings would tend to hold the crack together rather than split it. Such a repair would be at least as strong as new. But I bet it's been played like this for a long time and could go unrepaired.

If someone decides to take it on, I'd be happy to offer advice and kibitz from the sidelines... I've never been a fan of cherry bursts myself.
