Flat Tops

I make flat tops in all shapes and sizes. I have more than a dozen different moulds (see below) but I favour the smaller body sizes in general. They have better definition without the sometimes overpowering bass of Dreadnought size guitars. I have also experimented with transverse, that is to say ladder bracings, which were used on flat top guitars in the first half of the 20th century, particularly the less expensive models. I find the tone quality appealing.
