Hey all I'm on the cusp of pushing the button on selling some stuff so I can either: Stump up for one of the Abasi 8 strings when they launch them at NAMM OR Get an 8 string built by a British luthier. Now I don't have endless cash. I think the very very top end of my budget would be $3k and I'd like to keep it below that if possible (I've seen speculative posts that the Abasi guitars are going to be retailing for around $3200 which at current exchange shakes out to around £2.5k ish). I was looking at Siggery stuff but he seems to have vanished of the face of the earth and the last bits of news I saw were people having been left high and dry after he ran into financial difficulty and ill health. Recommendations appreciated ya'll. Thank you.
