I once put gut strings on my 1988 Ricrado Sanchis 2A, a cedar-top, and it sounded very poor, and much better with nylon. So, I was wondering if gut and cedar were not a good match. However, this Jose Antonio Fleta disproves that. As soon as I put them on, I knew it was an improvement over the three different sets of nylon strings I'd been trying out. The basses are still Savarez Corum.
Yes, dark in the bass but generally bright in the treble, I think, perhaps due to the 9-fan+slanted harmonic bar bracing pattern and the resulting high resonance mode of the top.
