The art of bracing the top

Completing the soundboard!

Giannis sent me today two more photos from the completion of the soundboard.The braces, made also from AAA Master spruce, been glued to the underside of the top.The grain of them runs perpendicular to the grain of the soundboard.The braces with the top can then be tuned, by the experienced hands and ear of the luthier.
