So i've been bracing top number 2.....
I haven't really started to actually tune it, and I still don't really know what i'm listening for in a fan braced top, but in my opinion i'm definitely not there yet. It is only really the start point though and I have a way to go.

The big transverse braces look massive, but they are apparently the right dimensions. I still have to scallop the ends of those to better fit them into the box. I also haven't glued the flat, wide vertical braces inbetween the two transverse braces yet.
