what no-one has pointed out is that a first build will delight you if it sounds like a GUITAR, forget the idea of different woods sounding different, unless you have a skilled luthier guiding your every move then it won't matter THAT much.

as for the radius dish, you need a load of clamps, right?

just shape your braces and clamp them onto the top/back and they'll pull into the radius.

I've just started #59 and I don't have any dishes.

I made one guitar at a class and used the dishes there, and to be honest, I'm happier without them
