Carvin.com : DC800 EIGHT STRING EXTENDED SCALE GUITAR
Save up and get this. Everybody that's played mine looks at me and says " wow, I'm surprised how easy this guitar is to play, it's effortless." That statement has come from beginners all the way up to advanced guitarists with music degrees and custom jazz 7 string hollow bodies. The Carvin DC800 is awesome. If you get a solid color with simple woods you'll probably pay right around 1,000 to 1,100. I'd save up the extra 200 to 300 and get a guitar you'll want to keep and play for a life time.
