comment Guitar for super-small hands?
The A&L Ami is a very nice guitar, but its sibling, the Seagull Grand, is an amazingly responsive steel-string fingerstyle guitar - and it sounds great. I wouldn't use it for rhythmic playing, though.

comment What instrument is this?
@JavierBadia - That's the oddest thing I've seen in some time. Nice!

comment Bring Your Own Mic
Most festival sets are significantly longer than open mic sets - 30 to 60 minutes, in my experience. I work audio at festivals, and it's never a problem when a performer has their own mic. (Some singers eat the mic, and bring their own even though it's just an SM58 or similar; others have specific vocal mics they prefer.) But if a performer brought their own mic for an open mic, I'd tell them to leave it in their bag unless they had a very good reason for needing it.

comment What would be the a good tuning for an instrument with a limited amount of tones?
Voting to close. This question is a purely theoretical musing that's obviously not based on any real problem (by the author's oqn admission). The answers it's invited are pure speculation.

The lighter strings have lessened the neck relief significantly, although I have to measure, I think it's now within Peavey specs of 1/16 - 1/8". Am now getting buzz on the upper few frets, there's obviously more work to do. Will report back soon.

Have installed the lighter strings, and adjusted the action. The bass is much more playable, although there are some qualities about flatwound strings that I miss. I'll move along to the truss rod and the neck tilt adjustments and report back then.

Thanks, maybe I will! Do you know of a good reference for truss rod adjustments?
