First Guitar Build!

Recommended Posts

It will probably sound fine, but I'm wondering why there's so little arch;

Did you radius the braces? Did you glue them down in a matching caul or radius dish? Did you glue them in controlled temperature and - more importantly - humidity? No big swings? Did you radius or taper the side set to match the back-brace radius (otherwise there's no way you'll keep a good amount of arch...)?

Keep in mind we're talking about (generally) 15' radii, which means, what, max a quarter inch drop/rise over a 24" span; it's not a massive amount or anything, but it's certainly present and visible.
