Another bracing

Here's the other guitar's skeleton. This time I seated all the rest of the braces in small pockets cut in the X-brace. So the whole "system" is connected to bridge area. This should help the top vibrate and the braces withstand a bit more "rigors of the road", should that occur.

In the first pic, the unbraced top resting on my "Go-Bar" cupboard bought from a second hand shop nearby. The plate on which the top is resting, is actually curved to fit the curved braces. Although it's called a flat top guitar, the top's never dead flat!
In the second pic, the braces are glued down. Only the smallest finger-braces plus bridge plate need to be glued later, as I run out of bars in the process.
