I've been having a great time with my projet. I tended to think it has tuning issues, especially in the lower frets.

As I played it last night, I realized the medium jumbo frets are taller than I am used to and I go sharp.... I tried the very light feather touch on chords and such and it instantly went to tune. I was pressing too hard. Sometimes it's the player and not the guitar...

It seems like that's true more often than not, at least for me. ;)

Exactly. Guitars are a lot like guns: they are WAAAY more accurate than the shooter.

That's the limitation.
