I bought a TBC 400SS from a music store on eBay. I did not get it from TBC. The listing said it was new with no shop wear. It looks fine from a few feet away but when you look closer there are a bunch of flaws in the fit and finish. I had the impression that the fit and finish on TBC instruments was quite good. I don't know if what I'm seeing is normal or not. Take a look at the photos and let me know what you think.
