David, Have you used that back bracing much? I really like its tunability and have been using a similar design for the last few years with excellent results. A tip of the hat to our friends down under, eh.

Hey Tim ... yep, I've been using it for a few years now. You're right ... lifted from Gore/Gillet.

I agree ... it's main advantage is that you have a much wider variety of notes you can tune to and still maintain structural stability!

Beautiful build David!
What wood do you use to make the solid liners with? I really like the clean look.

Hey Travis ... thanks! I'm currently using poplar for my solid lining. Poplar can be pretty green in colour, but I try to find a white board to cut mine from.
