Our preshaped brace kits are made to match the specific LMI plan referenced in the line descriptions. They could also be used for generic guitars similar to our plans. The braces are shaped from quartersawn vertical grain Sitka Spruce. The bottom of the braces are flat and and need to be cut to length, after which they can easily be contoured to your desired back and soundboard radius using a radiused dish and sandpaper (SPH50). The braces are not scalloped as we feel the builder should scallop the braces while tapping the top until the ideal taptone is achieved.
