Pickinbob: Yes it does make a difference what you use for bracing. I recommend spruce because of the strenght to weight ratio. In other words the highest strenght for the least weight. Assuming this is your first guitar I suggest you get the Stew-Mac dreadnaught plan.Also a book on construction such as the Cumpiano book. If after that you want to continue building get the Gore-Gilet books as others have suggested. Good luck and have fun.
