    So the extra bracing has to be added for the pickup mount and the volume and tone pot?
    Looks so naked without the back on!:confused:

    I am a luthier retired.I've built 3 archtops and 50 flattops and a couple of acoustic basses.The one pictured is spruce top maple back and sides modeled after Beneditto.
    I built two of those exactly the same except one is "X" braced and one is parallel braced.I wanted to hear the difference in sound quality between the two and frankly there isn't much difference. I'll try and post more pics when time allows.

    Those look really nice! I've always been a fan of blondes. What's the scale length on those?
