Retrofit body for my 8-string?

  1. I have given some thought to having a body made for my 8-string. It is a lovely instrument, but it is a bit heavy and doesn't balance as well as it could.

    Has anyone ever had a body made to match a neck? How much do they tend to cost, and does anyone know of a luthier (preferably in the UK) who will happily do this?


    Thanks,
