Great comparison! Assigning a rough point system to each instrument on each parameter (1 is the lowest and 5 is the highest...as the Ramirez is 2 notches above on Tone), I get the following ratings:Reymundo wrote: ↑Sun Oct 01, 2017 11:48 amI’ve been playing Ami “cg82s” and comparing her to my other guitars. Nothing matches the Ramirez sound exactly, but I also note the Ramirez has a cedar top, my other 3 are spruce tops. The cg82s sounds terrific and as do the two Luis Fernández de Córdoba’s (LFdC’s). As far as comparing similarity of sound and tone and playability (and degree of fit and finish), I would compare/distance them from each other as follows:
Ramirez 1A Elite>>CG82S>LFdC(#43)>LFdC(#36)
LFdC(#36)>LFdC(#43)>CG82S>Ramirez 1A Elite

LFdC(#36)>CG82S>LFdC(#43)>Ramirez 1A Elite

Ramirez 1A Elite>CG82S>LFdC(#43)>LFdC(#36)
They are all excellent guitars, but the most regularly played one is the LFdC(#36), mainly because it’s so light and open. It is very easy to pick up and play, even if you only have a few minutes.
Below are some photos of my newest Luis Fernández de Córdoba (#43), which I received yesterday.
Ramirez 1A Elite: 11
Yamaha GC82S: 11
LFdC #36: 10
LFdC #43: 9
All in all, the GC82S is pretty fine and I would expect the tone to improve and the sound to open up with more playing. Thanks a lot... ...my anticipation as I wait for mine to arrive is now even harder to bear...
P.S. Any thoughts on the effect of the tornavoz on LFdC #36?
