Don't worry, those strings were only a temporary measure to give me some idea of the set up.

Yesterday, I took the guitar to Matthew's workshop and Matthew crowned and polished the frets for me, cut the nut slots and finished the set up (I did some of the final nut shaping!) and fitted the Thomastik Infield John Pearse Folk strings, so it's now a proper guitar! I've still got the Frensh Polishing to do, but I'm going to live with it for a few weeks and let it settle in before taking the hardware off to do that.

Here are a few pics:
