Shaped Dreadnought Brace Sets

Precision-shaped spruce! Quartersawn braces with bottom curvature for Dreadnought. Accurately shaped and sanded by machine to save you hours of work.

The soundboard braces are accurately shaped to a 28-foot radius. The subtle curves and tapers are already there. The back brace set has a 20-foot radius and includes five flat cross-grain spruce center strips.

For fast, efficient clamping when gluing and shaping braces, use our Go-bar Clamping System radiused dishes.

Wish I would've found this years ago...never gave fretboards a second thought...just used basic oils, etc. This is by far the best I've ever seen, and used. Highly recommed !!!
