Are you financing this? It'd be hard for me to finance something that wasn't perfect in a big purchase like this, especially if another 2-3 grand got me what I wanted. I ask this because you noted a liking for an 1860, there are other makers that could potentially get you into this. Also, call up some of those custom guys that build whatever you want and get a quote, you may be surprised. I got a quote from a Southern Aluma-Werks w/a 3/16" bottom, custom tunnel, and it was very very reasonable to me. There are others, I just don't have their names near me now. Would also be worth it to shop around on the financing if you're going that route.
