I was trying to purchase a Schecter C-8 Special with black trans finished maple and EMGs. I found it on Amazon and Musicians Friend, but none of those provide oversea shipping. I finally found it on one of the guitar shops on the web which ships overseas. They sent me a paypal invoice, and I sent my payment. But they told me one guy bought it right before they checked my payment. Then they offered me a apology discount on other guitar I'm interested. I mailed back that I have a interest on Schecter C-8 ATX, however I'm not sure who it turns out since it's priced almost $200 more expensive than the previous one.
So there's a pretty big chance that the deal would be canceled.
I've been avoiding Agile 8s from Rondo for two reasons.
They are 28.625" scale which is two big for my hands.
They all have two truss rods which would make setup tricky.
If I spend 800 to 900 USD, are there other options for 8 string guitars?
Are there any companies custom shop making about 26" scale 8 string guitar with a single truss rod?
