I do think a lot ultimately hinges on how the set up gels with the person and I was so interested to see how with Hauser III you were able to tailor it to suit you (a bit like a Brioni tailor made suit no??:)) Based on ChristianK's comment I may try and find time to go and check out the Bartolozzo guitar..
You're very kind. Thank you. Should the deal not work out with the Bartolozzo the dealer that had mine has another one that is gorgeous and constructed with woods similar to mine. I think you can just do a google search for Hauser III number 724 on you tube and have a listen.
Miles at Kent Is, in my opinion, extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I've spoken to him, but never been in his studio. After your visit please post a report.
I took a listen to the Bartolozzo with Miles playing 'Romance di los Pinos' and though a new instrument has a lovely tone and with my eyes closed I could hear the Hauser provenance. Very nice indeed!
All the best,
