His view on how "the body functions for fingerstyle playing is with a lively responsive back and top. The sides are there to enable efficient transfer of energy between the two. It makes sense to infer that the stiffer the sides are, the more efficient that transfer will be, since energy isn't dissipating due to the sides flexing."

Pictures of the rim together:
