After some time, and after reading some opinions, I decided to order with Ganesh, and I have to say that my experience is positive.
Here is my Sultan 3" on an Vintage Drueke 21" (2 inch sqr)
Three half sets - Boxwood,Ebony and Sheesham.
So beautiful. Is there any similar set available in the market at the moment?
I have ordered quite a few(maybe 10) sets from Chessbazaar in the last 6 months.A couple of boards too.A week and a half ago I got the 19th Century Austrian set,which had 7 damaged pieces.I sent an e-mail to them and because of the damage.
I checked my other pieces,from my other CB sets,since they had not been used much....Just to see if they had developed any issues......Two of my 1849 Staunton pieces had,for no apparent reason developed cracks and one pawn,from the "stunning" Latvian set was now cracking.I sent off another E-mail to Chessbazaar to let them know this....Btw,I am very well versed on proper humidity,as I collect acoustic guitars and my pieces are in a well controlled room......To be honest,I'm a bit concerned,as I've not heard a peep from CB.I'm hoping that within the next couple of weeks I get a package from them.
If my damaged pieces are replaced with no problems I'll be impressed with CB....Got my fingers crossed.
@Fer8799, Yes, please post photographs of what you received. Inquiring minds want to know. Many people on this thread have been burned by Ganesh Chess, so we would LOVE to see a couple of sets that actually live up to their billing. With one exception, none of the people who have
had a "positive" experience with Ganesh has followed through with pictures. It makes us wonder whether they are real or shills for Ganesh. Please, post pictures!
Hi Rcmacmillan, sorry but I haven't seen you request.
In any case, I'm still happy with the pieces, but I I check boards just week and I've seen that my two bigger boards have some cracks, you can check here the photos:
I will ask Ganesh about this problem, and will post here his answer too.
I will upload when I have some time, sorry.
@Fer8799, No need to post your pictures here since the link you've given works well. It looks like you've gotten lucky; the pieces look pretty good -- especially the set with Blackburne style knights. It looks like there are a couple of dings on the Dubrovnik pieces. I would not have been happy with those boards, though -- especially the cracks where it was obviously a manufacturing error rather than wood expansion/contraction.
What you posted is OK, but I still wouldn't risk sending my money to Ganesh again. Those boards should never have been sent out in the first place.
Hi @rcmacmillan, the boards arrived fine, the cracks have appared later. I realized last week. In any case, I think boards have to be done ti support expansion/contractions. i Will así ganesh about It, because happened in two of three boards...
