I have (3) vintage Yamaha's I've taken apart to show the bracing. Cool stuff.
Don't let Taylor see that V bracing pic!! They claim they invented it!!!
When V-bracing was first being discussed over at AGF, somebody from Holland posted proof that a builder in that country had developed that bracing a long time ago.
One thing I have learned on the internet is that if I have a thought or do something I think might be unique, I will quickly find that thousands of others have already thought or done it, and are probably wondering why it took me so long.
Think of climbing some big, treacherous mountain, ready to plant your flag, only to find your grandmother already there, chuckling as she wonders what took you so long.
