From time to time I consider switching to my Ramirez 1a as my main instrument (664mm). I am very tall (1,97m) so I find that my big hands fit better on that thick neck. * Note that I have a new nut with reduced string spacing and a shaven bridge for quite low action, so the playability of my 1a is very good *
Now I play mainly a Bernabe especial (650mm) that has a quite thin neck, so at some positions I find my thumb tends to hug the fretboard and show up over it.. so my left hand doesnt stand very comfortable and I feel this leads to discomfort and/or mistakes.
Soundwise as you can imagine or know, Ramirez has a darker sound, maybe wins on the treble sustain and roundness, while Bernabe seems more modern, has a great unique rich sound and with better voice separation in comparison.
The truth is that I seldom see around the old 1a as the main performance instrument of other players. Could the 1a be a drawback for me for more modern repertoire (for example) soundwise, or elsewhere?
I would like to stick on one of the two istruments as I move on to my degree hopefully at 2019.
What would you do in my place / what would be your advice?
