Hi Everyone,

Time to post some more pictures. These next three are gluing and shaping the back graft. This cross grain strip reinforces the seam where the two back plates
are joined:

Here is a picture of the two tops. So far they are as identical as I can make them:

The bracing for the crossover is an area that has to be a lot different. The X bracing for a steel string guitar helps bring out the base from the steel strings. A nylon string guitar is braced in such a way as to bring out the high end because nylon strings tend more to the base side.

Thanks for viewing!
