Super super upset 😢

Hi there , I’ve just about to start my first shamisen experience , today I’ve received my shamisen order form Japan and when I open the box , my heart broke :sob::sob::sob::sob:the neck is broken , and now I’m really really upset dont know what To do ,it’s expensive for me , around 85000yen :sob::sob::sob:

Anyone have experience about this ? Really upset!

I’m new here can’t post the pics to show u all :cry:

What you mean by broken? Is the neck separate in 3 pieces? Or is broken like really broken? You can post pictures, when you’re posting there’s a small icon like a picture shape, click on it and add em.
If is really broken i think @Kyle_Abbott can do really magic into that.

Oh my! So sorry for what happened, I would be upset too…

Did you buy your shamisen from a store? If so, it would be best if you could contact them and tell them what happened + pictures. I am sure that they would be willing to figure things out.

If it is bought through an auction with a proxy service then try to contact the proxy, see what can be done but I don´t know how much can be solved in this case.

Where did the neck break?

Broke like this :sob::sob::sob:I will call the shamisen shop owner tmr :sob:

Thanks Brandon , I’m so helpless when I c this :sob::sob::sob:

Thanks Stefanie , I will call the shamisen Japan shop owner tmr ,try to communicate with him :disappointed::disappointed::disappointed:

Oh, Wow, my heart broke when I saw that. I’m so sorry that happened to you. That poor shamisen.
