Seems like a good point by @DrGuitar1. I too, set my strings at a min height to achieve good action on my Taylor 812ce and it does help improve endurance and sound; backing off when necessary to protect against string-buzz.
On another note, fairly recently, someone handed me their Martin D?? model and to my surprise, I found my fingerstyle accuracy was extra sloppy until I “calibrated” myself by several minutes of fingerstyle picking. It was at this time, I became aware (by measuring with a steel rule) that my Taylor 812ce is equipped with a wider nut and a wider bridge. Maybe imperceptibly wider, but noticeable! Are there different “cardinal sizes” of “nuts” or “bridges” ? I’ve been told that the Taylor is specifically designed towards fingerstyle and perhaps the strings are wider for (in part) for fingerstyle playing. At any rate, by merely looking at guitar models, I can’t distinguish the nut/bridge width without researching. Question: Shouldn’t this width also be a consideration for musicians based on hand-size and type of picking style?
