Thomann Portuguese Bouzouki Deluxe, made in Europe, solid spruce top, inlaid binding, soundhole with mother of pearl inlays, highgloss varnish, fingerboard made of Australian Blackwood (Acacia melanoxylon), neck made of mahagony, back and sides made of ovangkol.
I bought this instrument a year and half ago. After playing quite often and having a good feeling, a fissure appered in the box, in the front, Thomann told me to send it and check if the can repair it or not with the guarrantee service.......I sent it and then SURPISE!!!! Thomann wrote me to tell me the bouzouki is BROKEN by the neck, it's almost divided in two parts and of course this is not rapairable with the guarrantee I don?t know if that was a transport accident (they say no) or whatever. Thomann says that this is MY FAULT and the are going to do NOTHING to help me. I?m so dissapointed, I just wanted to repair a litle deffect and now I have no instrument anymore, they say they give me back, but of course broken, if I pay 35¤ for transport back. I still fight for it, I didn't give up yet, if something happens i will write again, I hope because of something possitive.
