Very interesting and thanks for this comparison,
That was cool to hear! I liked the first two best, but they all had their good points.
Paying a fretless instrument has really made more sensitive to--and frustrated by--the fretted guitar. I've also started playing Irish music in the flute, and being "out of tune" on some notes is part of the characteristic sound. In traditional irish folk music, there aren't any harmony instruments, so you don't hear the clashing so clearly
The first and fourth sounded best to me. The just intonation sounded worst to me. Very interesting!
It's hilarious watching the video with the quote about tuning directly underneath the entire time.
The first one was most noticeable. The others were all fine, but tuning 1 sounded 'brighter' and more pleasing for lack of a better word.
Where does one even find a fretboard like that?
Interesting! I picked 1 and 3. I thought 3 sounded the best of all...must be that my ears prefer modern fretting.
Overall I preferred #3 (equal) the best but I'm sure it's just what I'm used to.
I did really like #4 in some spots better though. I tend to push sharp my minor 3rds and I noticed that in the fourth tuning they are adjusted less flat from both 'just' and 'equal'.
Version #3 sounded most "at home" for me; next was #2 - with both #1 and #4 I experienced moments of queasiness, where some of the overtones just didn't sound "right" to me.
