First order of business was to get some 13s on it (there were 12s on there) and then drop the action by about 1/32”. First time working on a long saddle, which has to be lowered from the top not sanded from the bottom like a drop in saddle. Turned out fine. I haven’t bothered re-compensating the saddle - it really doesn’t sound like it needs it (for how I play anyway).
First impressions - loud (but not as forceful as the mahogany bodied D1A), and the enlarged sound hole seems to do what people say thy do ... make the bass sound drier and less whompy and make the highs a little less bright but with more body. I like it a lot.
Will post a vid once the strings have played in a bit.
Many thanks to Will for a very smooth and easy transaction!
