My picado 62 spruce 630cm arrived. With my very limited one year experience on guitar, I would say it's better than the 4ne spruce I tried:)
Treble is clear with nice overtone. I just feel bass is a bit tight and doesn't go along very well with the treble overtone. Very good workmanship, tuning machine is also nice.

The tightness will go away little by little,still the shorter scale may make the bass punchier than 650. If you go for a rounder sounding string, it may be compensated, I used EJ46c(not bad, but trebles are weak) and Ej44c (way better balance) in my Concierto 630mm, and will try some Augustine Regal and Hannabach HT as I like a big bass...

Hi Mr. Rain, thanks a lot for your advice. I need to refine my thumb skill first as my tutor already pointed out the unbalance between my strong thumb and weaker i,m, a fingers. Just imagine the 4 little strings sing well together till the 5th, or the 6th, one suddenly jumps in :D
