Looking to buy in the 600$ range, probably unrealistic for what i am asking for tho, so up to 1000$ if its right.

pickup is a plus and will pay more so i dont have to use the crappy violin stick-on thingy for live stuff

Lanikai makes a solid-top 8-string that's around $300. I have one and it's well made, sounds great, too.

I'll third Mele. I own four of their ukes now. My new one comes in on Friday. Call them and see if they have any of the koa top mahaghany back and sides 8 stringers in stock. little bit les expensive then the all koa model. Their pick-ups are the best as well(Fishman).
