I have now set up a recording method and will post a few sample recordings of the sound of my GC82S. I used a Tascam DR60D with stereo Samson CO2 microphones, approximately 8" from the guitar pointed at the 12th fret and in between the bridge and the sound hole. The microphones were aimed roughly at the 3rd and 4th strings. Here are a few pictures:
The piece is Campanae Parisiences (The Bells of Paris) by Jean-Baptiste Besard, 1617 and the version was published in "The Guitar Review", Number 17, 1955 (24bit, 48Khz MP3 @320kbps):

As a matter of interest, here is the same recording in its original format (24 bit/96Khz WAV):

The strings have been played for about 6 weeks (so a little less vibrant than when new) and the sound of the GC82S has lost its original slightly edgy tone after 10 months of playing. This is my first recording attempt and I found it a bit distracting...so pardon the few performance anomalies. I will post more samples to explore the tone colour and character of the instrument's voice after I optimize the microphone positioning.
