Default Top redone

Its been about two years ago since I built this 00. After these years of playing it I found I was missing some frequencies, so I decided that I would redo the top. I've been working on it for a few weeks now and just finished it up.

I used Carpathian again. And decided to do the bracing a bit different this time around.

I'm very pleased with how this came out. And now I'm getting what I wanted all along.

Doing a retop takes a bit of time and patience, routing off the old and making a new one to plop in place. This was also my first retop.
I decided to go with herringbone rosette and purfling for this one, instead of the basic b/w/b I went with the first go round.

I went with a bigger bridge as well and chose braz for it. And thought adding rosewood bridge pins would clean things up as well.
