Braces

For such a small extra cost these are a real time saver. Highly recommended.

A Real Timesver

These will work great on any traditional acoustic, parlour size through dreadnought. Thickness sand and refine the shape as you please. Great for the intermediate builder that has better things to do than machine and carve braces.

Perfectly shaped

By Capu from Switzerland
(Customer's Reviews) Friday, July 30, 2010


I bought this set just to test the quality. They are perfectly shaped, the only thing I disliked is the shape where the x-braces cross: I prefer them squared in order to have a perfect fit with no gap but in this case, due to the fact they are rounded, the joint is not perfect
