I would recomend Ovation saddles. I had the San Diego model for about 3 years and it held up super well and is a really nice looking/stylish saddle. Most of their saddles have a changeable gullet as well! I paid around $1400 brand new (I'm in Canada) and the leather was actually great quality! It was quite soft and grippy. For the price I was greatly surprised with the saddle. I just recently upgraded to an Antares because I needed a more custom fit, otherwise I would've kept my Ovation.
