Your most welcome James,
I'm not entirely sure how to deal with this sort of thing when tracking such a resonant instrument. The frequencies seem to wander depending on temperature, humidity etc and sometimes it's just a matter of positioning the mic a little different.
Maybe try aiming the mic up the neck a bit more and away from the sound hole and body which produce more of the resonance.
I don't think compression should be too much of a concern as long as the resonance peaks are flattened out around the same level as the rest of the sound but would probably use parallel compression and blend it back in anyway.
