Hi Echi, I talked to Andrea some days ago and he confirmed that he tries to avoid Val di Fiemme. He was recently there for the first time in 20 years and bought some spruce, but not very much. Andrea said he was a close friend of Paolo Coriani and highly praised his craftsmanship. He recently saw and played a cypress Torres built by Coriani and recalls that the tone was "to die for". Tacchi also said that Paolo had the best and most impressive timber in his stock he had ever seen in his life. He will know what he's talking about.

Beautiful Instrument! I almost bought a similar model from GSI a year or two ago. Actually... It just may have been this very guitar. I wonder!

Hi Peter,

Sorry for the delay on the recordings... my schedule keeps getting criss crossed with my friend. He coming over Thursday next week so I’m hoping to get them up by then! Thanks for being patient.

Thanks for the link... to anyone viewing this I'll be honest this guitar sounds nothing like his Ramirez copy. Hopefully that will be evident when I finally get some videos up!

Cheers,

Hi, it looks from the picture that the G string is not secured behind the tie block, if so, a dangerous situation...
It looks that way to me too. I always worry about slippage there and melt the ends of the nylon strings to avoid it.

As long as the string has been seated properly in the initial tying it is not a problem. I’ve tied close to 1000 strings this way...

Could you explain what you mean by “seat properly”? My experience is that it can easily unwind under tension. No, I haven’t tied a thousand strings but I’ve had them slip.

Sure, I exert a fair amount of pressure on the string end of the knot with one hand while I tighten the string up to tension with the other hand. This in essence ties a knot under tension which I find difficult to untie even when the string is loose.

All I can say is that I’ve never had a slip but I only do this for the nylons that I use. If I’m doing carbon strings they get a ball melted on the end like you do.

Here is a video of the guitar being demo'd. The video has only been edited to adjust the image and add text--no audio compression. It was recorded in a medium sized room with a basic set of Rhode M5's.
