There are many different types of bracing patterns. The most common and enduring pattern used on steel-string acoustic guitars is called "X" bracing; so named for the two braces that form an "X" by crossing each other in the middle of the pattern.Not all "X" bracing patterns are created equal, however. Jasmine's "Advanced X Bracing" system features a "forward-shifted" "X" bracing pattern that places the braces closer to the soundhole, producing a livelier, more open sound with improved definition and note detail.The quartersawn braces provide exceptional stability, with a scalloped design that reduces weight and lets the top vibrate more freely, resulting in better sound. A solid rosewood bridge plate rounds out this remarkable package by providing superior balance and note separation.
