I did some recording last night and it really does sound Fantastic. I might consider some thumper strings (might try those other ones you sent me) because I'm finding the G string a bit too thin sounding. It could be improved with raising the action... but the E and A are pretty nice where they are and I will likely have to trim a bridge foot and tilt the neck. OR I could just carve new a new bridge for it. I read somewhere a post by Francois where he's indicated an improvement in tone (Bass-max) with the use of a real DB bridge w/ feet cut down. I'll try new strings first and see how it goes. One more thing... I'm getting a loud rattle/buzz from the headstock on the open G. I tightened all the screws etc but I sounds like it's coming right from the tuner on the G. Any suggestions? I'm hoping it will resolve itself after I re-string it.
