Risa 8-string electric. $600.
Here's a great little 8-string semi-hollow
electric from Germany. With its ergonomic shape
and hot lipstick-tube pickup, it's simply a
blast to play. Satin vintage sunburst finish;
maple neck with 20-fret rosewood fretboard at
standard mandolin scale. Enclosed chrome tuners;
tone and volume controls. The regular retail
price for a new one is 455 euros, which at
current exchange rates is about $700, plus the
pesky problem of overseas shipping and customs.
This one's lightly used and already here in the
States, and will cost you merely $600. More photos
. Gig bag included. for more information.
