Hi Michael,

I appreciate your comments and questions. When you asked if I meant that I could go a little thinner than usual on the back, yes, because lattice bracing combined with a thinner than usual back can be more responsive. Light and stiff allows for better sound conduction.

Having the back supported by a web of braces prevents the skeletal effect that can arise over time with a thinner back stretched across heavier ladder braces.
