"Not to change the subject but can anyone provide any experience with forward shifted bracing. I'm trying it on # 6. Top plate is at 2.9 and am aware of Martin beefing up things for better structural integrity. Any comments are most appreciated.…"

Don Noonan replied to Don Noonan's discussion Bridges in the group Guitar Makers
"I've seen some bridges that cover a rather large area when compared to 'standard' bridges like martin. It seems to me that would inhibit to free vibration of the top plate by stiffening it from the top side thus hindering the sound.…"

Antonio Cotichini replied to Don Noonan's discussion Bridges in the group Guitar Makers

Janne Koskela replied to Don Noonan's discussion Bridges in the group Guitar Makers

"2nd try with the water based grain filler did it. Will apply 2nd coat to make sure grain is filled. I think I stilllike the solvent grain filler better."

Don Noonan commented on Brent McElroy's group Guitar Makers
"Since Lawerence-McFadden is no longer available, (heard they went out of business but may have been purchased by another company) what are you using for grain filler and what is your source. Tried the water-based but not very successful...any…"

"Will try to post pics of #3 (000) and #4 (D). Learned much from both. Will probably give both away as there are too many mistakes. They are solid and sound good but as Brian commented earlier, I blundered through. Guess they will go to my wall.…"
