Keep us posted.

Lookin Great Hesh! Very nice clean work and smooth lines. Does she have a nice ringing tap to her now? The "other side" looks striking as well!

Hesh thanks for the pretty dramatic photos. Looks very nice. How about a little bit about your tool arsenal used? Nice rosette too.

Great workmanship Hesh, those braces are really well executed, great pics also.

I might try that on one of the 2 next build to see if i can compare it to traditional bracing.

Thanks for sharing!

Very nice work and an interesting project. I'd love to hear the tap tone. Does your plan call for a bridge patch & upper bout reinforcing?

Very nice!

Clean, clean, clean, and smooooooooooth.
I was really struck by the photos, too. Those shadows really show off the shape of the braces. Nice.

Looks great Hesh!

I hate to be the one to tell you this, but I think you put your rosette in upside down!

Hesh,

Looks good - great clean workmanship snd flowing lines. The photos look real Art Deco! I love looking inside guitars through side soundports as I play them, and if you could get some "weightless" lighting inside a guitar soundbox, the Son et Lumiere show would be a very interesting concept - Art Installation or musical instrument?

Does the top ring nicely as you tap around it? Let us know how it turns out.

Really good looking Hesh, great workmanship shown up by innovative lighting. I just know that you'll love the attack when you start to play it. I haven't scalloped a brace in a long time now, and can't think why I ever will again. Right, now put a 'parabolic' X-brace on the back and you'll really be cooking. Don't forget nice 'parabolas' on the bridge as well.

No bridge patch? I dunno about that.

Nice work, but I think it's overbraced.
