If you can afford to and have some money kickeing- try to find a Yani 991 sop.
I bored one off of a friend and it was amazing- so easy to play and the tone was perfect and felt well under the fingers.
Have you looked on musicalinstrumentsales.co.uk?
I have a nice 901 Sop, set up with in the last year by Stephen Howard. I have a big tax bill this Jan, so am having a clear out.
Please PM me if you are interested.
