Recently played one of the 40s era ones with the larger sound hole and I'm hooked. Didn't get a chance to really examine it and take pictures though as my client didn't have time to leave it with me.

Was curious if anyone had a bracing pattern for one from the 40s?

From what I could gather the body dimensions are identical to a J45/35. Is there any distinct differences that I should note?

Any info is appreciated.

For reference this is the style of Smeck that I'm asking about.
