Thomann decorative instruments?

Recommended Posts

Spotted the D stamp on the heel of several of the basses this guy is selling, mostly lefty stuff but if
he is reselling the Thomann decorative stuff without informing the buyer then that seems like a really
%&£$^$ thing to be doing :angry:

I don't honestly blame him but it is a bit cheeky. Thats a £90 mark up for a deco which is a little steep.

Now doing the maths i can see that you could buy the brand new ones shipped from Thomann for half the price of some of them which is a little crazy!

I don't blame him for doing it but I do feel he should let buyers know if he bought them as decorative/damaged instruments.

If you look at the other basses he's selling you'll see the "D" plain as day. They stamp base of the neck or where the neck plate would be.

Why?

These instruments were sold to him as Spares or Repair (equivalent), he is selling them as New Other, which whatever way you look at it is not correct. It is used, at best, as he is the second owner. Iv reported the listing posted, but doubt it will do any good.

He's selling them as 'New Other' which means he is not doing anything wrong in the eyes of eBay, although we know better in that he is not declaring they are decos anywhere.
