Great Braces Material

These uncarved braces are high quality, light, beautifully quarter sawn and tight grain.
Exactly what contributes to stability and tone.
I'll be buying my bracing stock from StewMac from now on.

I bought two of these. Both had perfectly straight and quartered grain with zero runout. Unfortunately, one of the two did only have a few grain lines (growth rings) per inch. Not tight enough for me to use for acoustic bracing, but I'm sure I'll find another use.
