I like the design character of this guitar with the headstock shape and the rosette. With the bridge arrangement and bracing pattern how does it sound? I like to here a sound track sample.

Well done! Thanks for providing the audio track. The guitar sound is well balanced and has distinct clarity. I would expect that these features would be very helpful for recording and live performance. From my limited sound engineering experience in recording studios your guitar would work very well in this environment to enhance and develop a very workable audio track.

I have only been building with 'X' brace patterns so far and are yet to try other bracing formats. This makes the guitar building journey interesting and exciting with all the variety of timbers when factored together that can create unique musical instruments.

Wayne
