Re: Truss rod choice for OM build

...The issue is that the box deforms under the constant string load. This is less of a problem with Classical guitars, with the lower string tension, but even they have issues over the long run... Thank you for this info, I was thinking about spanish heel on steel strings... To keep the topic, I ha...

Sinker Redwood soundboard

Hello!
I bought this Jumbo sized Sinker Redwood soundboard from Allied Luthiery and kept it on a storage company in USA, but I'm without funds to pay the importation taxes here in Brazil.
So I'm selling it. I paid US$130 but will not put a price, please make me a offer.
Cheers,
Fernando

Re: Martin vs Gibson Bracings Differences

Wow! Thanks for the long answer!
I'll read again later to try understand better! But for what I understood now, the idea is that would not work very well tone-wise, right?

Re: Martin vs Gibson Bracings Differences

One more question:
Does anyone have build a steel stringed guitar with classical style bracings?
How does it sound?
Usually I found steel stringed a bit "hollow" sound, without much middles and a bit hard sound, I was thinking if build with a different style of bracings could help it

Bridge screws

Hello!
One more newbie question:
I saw that some builders screw the bridge on acoustic guitars and some others seems to not glue.
What is the deal with screwing? The glue can't handle the bridge with the strings tension?
I tend to think that no screws is better than screws...

Martin vs Gibson Bracings Differences

Hello!
I'm new on acoustic guitar building and found the pictures of the X bracings of Gibson and Martin very much alike, but I guess they're not.
What are the differences on these bracings?
Cheers,
Fernando
