As with Sam's comment, I also felt the sound was somewhat lacking in the bass department, even on the right channel. Could it be partly due to the instrument itself? What sort of guitar is it?

It us, and you may well be right. I noticed a skew myself, later.

I may have been a bit fierce with the low eq too!

It's a small bodied Yamaha - an LS16.

It has a surprisingly deep body for a smaller guitar, so shouldn't sound thin unless I've been a bit over zealous with the eq in the body/mud region.

Hopefully this is better balanced and slightly warmer now!
