It looked to be in decent shape and the store offers online pay and shipping. Im not affiliated with this place at all, in fact I wouldnt endorse them I just happen to see it when I stopped in for a minute. If you would like details pm me, I just wouldnt want to post about this place.

George Harrison tried for years, he even studied under the great Robbi Shankar, but he could never get ahold of the fundamentals, he was too hooked into western music. It's not easy to forget everything you know. My brother and I refer to the instrument as "Harrison's Bain"
I was looking into buying one myself, but now I think I'm going to get a petal steel.
I would love to learn the theory though, 11 notes just isn't enough sometimes
