big quality control issues

Well, the guitar is really astonishing cheap for a semi-hollow with Alnico PUs - unfortunately the quality appeared to be at the same, low level. Finish is not exactly as shown on Thomann pictures: back and sides are not see-through red-brown, they are solid black, so the colour is black burst. The headstock had significant damages of the lacque finish at the very top of it + there were small sratches here and there all over the body. 'Flamed' maple looked really cheap. But the main problem was with the wiring of the guitar - it produces tremendous hum beeing plugged even on the clean channel.
Thanks Thomann customer service team (its is brilliant as always!)- with their help HB35Plus was sent back to Thomann.
