A couple of months ago I used to hate headless instrument but now I'm planning on buying one and I'm gasing very hard for a Vader multiscale 8 string. The scale lenght and fan is perfect for my needs and I don't want any fancy top or finishes (their prices are insane). I was considering a 3 piece wenge-purpleheart and a mahogany or alder body with a solid color finish: nothing crazy. My biggest concern is that I'll have to pay about 400/500€ of pure taxes for a 1500/1600 € of the total price of the instrument. The other options available in EU are Strandbergs which are more expensive and the endurneck is not my cup of tea, or going for custom shop instrument which is even more expensive. My question is: should I still go for a Kiesel or is better to save up and add those 1k for a custom instrument?
