Overview

Another Thomann exclusive, with a standard 5.1mm Black Panther Maple shell but with a Saturn throw-off. If you have one and the Thomann badge is annoying you, apparently you can removed the vent cover and take it off. Not sure I'd bother, but your milage may vary. 

It was originally sold for €139 in 2009. From the Thomann listing...
