Thank you for the nice comment and listening. I hope you also liked the Sor recording.
i think the recording sounds very good, and will serve your stated purpose quite well.
Thank you for listening as well. I do think the recorder sounds pretty good. For my purposes, I just want something that will produce half decent results with minimal time put in to set up. I went to the store to buy the Zoom H2, but none were in stock. So, the guy at the store said to try the H1 out and that he thought it would suit my purposes. I can always return it. But, I think it does give a pretty good representation of the guitar. Not perfect, but also not bad.
The recorder was placed about 1.5 ft from the sound hole with the stereo mics pointed directly at the hole. I'm not sure if there is a better place to put it. If you pull the recorder in too much it gets very bass heavy. If you push it out too much you start to get more room noise and lose the vibrant silky guitar sound and end up with more room reverberation and harsh echoes. So, I tried to balance it to get the most accurate representation of the guitar that I could get, given my conditions of not too much setup time!
The guitar itself is my Ramirez 130 Anos and it is a well balanced and good sounding guitar. I think that comes through on the recording. It's a guitar with nice overtones and a smooth tone. It also has a bite if you really dig in. So, I think that comes through.
Eventually I will record my other guitars. So far I have only tried this one, as I tend to play it more often.
