Oh what a time saver these are, but I really need to make my own, yes lazy I know.
These do save me ages. It would be nice if the design was modified so that the X braces fitted together more elegantly, say, with a glued-on top piece as the two separately arched profiles cannot match perfectly.
braces have nice shape. wood looks good clean with no week spots
Well worth the money. On OM/000 size instruments I remove quite a lot of material but still come out well ahead of the time/drudgery curve compared to working from a brace billet.
Got my spruce back brace kit through and very happy. Good quality wood and nicely shaped.
I liked every thing about the set but the x brace the profiled side make it a bad lap joint it wold be a beter joint if the sided were square so you could get a tight fit
I received my order within 3 days of ordering. Excellent. The braces were perfectly shaped. It is bit costly due to the exchange rate and the shipping, but I used the set as a mould to shape and carve my own sets using the spruce brace block also from Stwewmac, especially the bottom curvature that could be tricky. Thanks
I have to tell you, I was pleasantly surprised how nice these braces were. I was expecting to have to do a lot of refining work, but ended up doing only a little. What a time saver .... it has my vote!
Thanks .... JC
Thank you Stew-mac for your great service and quality guitar parts the back braces are first class and time saving a wonderful product. The only small thing i would like to see improved is the top braces the X- brace cross over would be perfect if left flat to get a nice tight joint but apart from that they are great value for money i hope Stew-mac are always around you are the best.
A really great timesaver but like Capu, I would like to see the x-braces squared at the intersection. I would still use them though.
