Just curious if anyone knows what sort of setup Adrien has, particularly as of the time of this 2021 "virtual concert" (note: you have to click on it a couple of times to watch it on youtube):

There is lots and lots of (beautiful) "near buzzing" tonality, but I believe he uses medium strings (011 etc.). Is this a "very low action" setup, or "no neck relief," or something else?

    What's his guitar? It has a slightly larger soundhole akin to my Hodson. I would imagine that it's a 'no neck relief' AND 'low action' together. It's spot on! (though Tchavolo might struggle!)

    this is awesome, thanks for sharing it.

    It doesn't sound excessively low to me, he's pounding the strings pretty hard at times with no buzz.

    I think you can turn buzz on pretty easily by using less pressure on your fretting hand.

    I would guess that it's low but also very well adjusted.

    @pdg It's one of the Olivier Marin guitars.

    He's been playing them mostly when "in France" for a while, and the Holo often on the road.

    Matthieu Is playing a holo.

    However, In terms of exactly how that guitar is set up, you'd have to ask him that!

    His favino was easily the best tones I ever heard Adrien get. Maybe he just got sick of it or it developed an issue. Sometimes the hunt isn't an improvement, but we all do it.

    he didn't risk take it with him overseas to Charm City for the virtual concert. ;)
