These braces are great.

By

Verified Buyer


I love these braces. They save a lot of time and even a few mistakes from time to time. They are a great start to making a soundboard sound great. A little pricey though but if you don't have the equipment to make them with proper radiuses, they're priceless.

Supporting my first guitar kit

In the early stages of building my first guitar, and the back seam split open as the rosewood dried. Stwemac was very good about replacing the back and back braces that had to be cut to cut a new back joint.

Getting good feelings about tech support. You can have a conversation with them and they’ll work to make sure you’re successful.

I recently ordered Dreadnought plan and guitar bracing and kerfing for the guitar and a few other bits and pieces. Product that arrived was great. There were a couple of things left of the order BUT StewMac had them to me IN AUSTRALIA within 2 days. I was really impressed with the overall sevice. Cheers guys

Worth the extra cost.

Well shaped. Especially liked the back bracing with precise curves. Would like the tone bars to be a bit longer to allow for shaping. All in all it's a nice time saver as I've gotten all I can out of the self carving experience.
