Building My Guitar Cont... The Sides Are Bent

2/28/13,  I finally made it back to Arc Guitars Building School to work on my parlor size guitar.  Due to other conflicts such as a snow trip I have not worked on the guitar for about 3 weeks.   Needless to say its nice work on this project one more time.   I also brought my Martin OOO in for help installing a Miniflex Mic.   A special thank you to Al for helping me get that thing installed.  The hole at the end pin was too small and needed to be enlarged with a router.

Holidays Are Over *** Back To Work On My Guitar

Been Thinking About This Instrument I Am Working On

I don't go back to the school until Saturday. I am looking forward to the new challenge. I do wonder what will give my instrument the best tone. I was looking at the bracing in a Batson and Mcpherson and I noticed that they carved the centers out of the bracings - They look like bridges because they are scalloped as well. I wonder if this gives the sound more room to vibrate about? I will not try incorporating this idea for this instrument as I need to keep it simple for my first try. ...But…
