Just before leaving for Rochester, I had time to refit the "A" peg and try the instrument again. From my perspective, it sounds well balanced. The G is perhaps not quite as strong as the other strings, but overall the balance sounds pretty good.
I left the strings under full tension. When I get back to the instrument this week, it should have settled in. I will bring it home so that Jayne can play it, and see how she likes it.
