The top is singing nice and clear when tapped!

Here's two pics of the recently braced baritone top. I decided to go with a pretty light bracing (thou a bit wider than my "normal" in the x-brace plus some extra height overall.) I added on a little brace to sit against the bridge plate, to support the "bellying area". In addition, I'm using the "A-frame" pattern known from the newer Martins in the upper bout. This time I'm going tapered instead of scalloped style voicing. Mainly because of the new & handy miniatyre plane (4.90€) Just trying to guess & feel my way...
