HD 28vs 12-Fret V Brace Guitar Plans

  • Description

    • General Information:

      With a slightly larger body and a slotted head, the HD-28VS is a modern re-creation of the classic herringbone Dreadnought. The HD-28VS takes the already awesome HD-28V a couple of steps further. Fingerpicking is made much easier with the 1-3/4" wide neck, and the 12-fret body/neck joint gives this guitar a very open low-end, and gives it lots of projection. Build one out of Indian Rosewood and you will have one of the richest sounding guitars that you will ever play!

      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 enhanced by the enlarged bridge plate being tied not only to the top, but to the twin V-Braces as well.

      Note: As ALL of our plans are sold as digital downloads, when you complete your plan purchase with us, you will automatically be given a download link to access the plans.
