It is also worth noting that I have the Adalid set up exactly as I want it - down to the string tension and the saddle height, and over two years I have probably subconsciously micro-adjusted my playing to suit the guitar.
A better recording than the first one. What was it recorded with?
thanks - nice to see somebody who has won one of the highest standard guitar competitions playing the same instrument.

I'm shifting to the opinion that Spruce can change over time, as the other guitar does seem to have improved over the past few days, but such things can never be scientifically proven. Let me know if your spruce Adalid/Hopf improves, or you perceive it to improve.
Thanks for the listen. Yes, it was totally outdoors, I was surprised as well - which has made me think about recording outside again and then adding a little reverb.
Can you tell me what the action measurement is, now that you've lowered it?Adrian Allan wrote: ↑Mon Jun 05, 2017 4:39 pmTook it along to one of the most respected guitar repairers in the North West to lower the action by a couple of mm (I did not trust myself to do this simple job well).
He said it was one of the best guitars he had seen for a long time, and particularly liked the pattern (not sure what this is called in technical language) seen on the second photo that joins the two halves of the back from the inside.
Now it plays like a dream, and the intonation is near perfect to my ears.
