Can you cut the crack out and glue them back together?

Put epoxy into the crack and use a shop vac to pull it down into the tight spots. There is a wood whisperer video on this I saw a while back

In addition to gluing it back together, consider adding one or more butterfly keys.
The keys may be an appearance issue but some consider it as an enhancement.

If this is part of a musical instrument, you need to make sure the vibes can cross the joint without reflection. The joint must be perfectly tight or it will rattle or buzz.

disclaimer: I have never made a musical instrument. I did change a guitar string one time. ;-)
