This guitar shape is Grand Concert Guitar Plan. This guitar has a neck that joins the body at the 14th fret, a 4 3/8" deep body at the deepest portion and a 24 7/8" scale, which will be an easier reach for chords.
Equip this guitar with a Rosewood back and sides and Sitka Spruce top for a very well balance instrument. Consider Bubinga back and sides and a Western Red Cedar top for an instrument with greater volume. Finish up with light gage HD strings and you will have a great lead instrument.
This plan features our newest bracing pattern. The V Brace. This is a completely different patterns as compared to the standard X-Brace pattern that has been around since C.F. Martin introduced it on their Dreadnought series of guitars in the 1920's. The V-Brace balances the tone better and drives the sound toward the soundhole much more directly. Also the top will vibrate more freely due to the fact the only brace tied to the sides is the lateral brace.
Structural support is enhance by the enlarged bridge plate being tied not only to the top, but to the twin V-Braces as well.
