Lovely bit of work Geoff. I notice that you have compensated the nut for the g string. Did you do that on the others as well?
Thanks - its rougher round the edges than it looks !
Not all - the first Torres was zero @ nut - also the romantic was the same zero. The 1st Hernandez was modified with a stepped nut ( ie 1mm super glued on and ground back. This one and the 2nd Torres I mostly play daily - had the boards 1mm short - then I grind back a rebate 0.5mm on the nut- leaving the G untouched. Quite easy to do if the board goes in 1mm short. Just a quick dremel along.
Basically all @ minus 0.5mm G @ minus 1mm
Can I tell the difference - nope. That said - can I play Lagrima - nope ( well 'improving' ! )
All the saddles have fairly standard intonations for ej45 from various sources here. They seem to work fine.
