Default Back Bracing

Here Larry is laying out and prepping the back braces for gluing.

The back brace template...a standard ladder pattern. The position marks from the top pattern (see the X?) are showing through from the reverse side.

A raw back brace. Note the rectangular cross section.

The shaving commences.

Ahhh...that's better. The brace ends are not yet taken down to their final height. That happens later.

The back brace layout prior to gluing. I dig the Tahoe Guitars badge as part of the back reinforcement.

A brown truck eased into my space
My wife screamed somewhere
I struck a deal with the man at the Guitar-for-bills
I am the GASsing stranger
A fool in love, within compulsion mills
