Normaly I really don't care either about finish and as I said in my post, I could easily adress all these issues, even refinish the body, refret the neck to different speced frets ir just level, bevel, crown, polish etc. I do have a fully functional control plate with the switch and p/p in a drawer. I actually do repair work on guitars on a weekly basis so it is not that I can't resolve any of the quality issues. My problem is that I don't want to pay 279 € for a defect and poorly assembled guitar. It is way overpriced. Or my problem is that I expected way too much. I also made my review aimed at those whom may not be able to perform this kind of work on their guitars. I might have gotten the only really bad one out of thousands but I wanted to share my impressions. IME this particular guitar is not worth the money. Its going back, Thomann pays the return freight and they even reimburse me. Very good policy. I got burned on this one, emotionally, and if I will buy another which I doubt at the moment, I'll pick one first hand and try it first.
