OK, so I finally satisfied my GAS for an 8-string with a used Washburn RB-2802. I held my breath and got it from Ebay - it arrived in one piece, no dents or dings, and seems to play very nicely. I have yet to take it to my local luthier for the primo set-up, but initial impression is positive. It does need new strings. Please pardon me if this subject has been beat to death, but (my) IMWTK. My question is: I want to get a warm, clear, chiming tone from this guitar to augment some of the acoustic stuff my band does. What strings would the list's collective wisdom suggest?
