A sequence of carved wood pieces connected to the bottom of the instrument’s top may be found within an acoustic guitar. The guitar’s bracing is made up of these carved wood parts. The bracing’s principal purpose is to support and maintain the structural integrity of the guitar’s top. Depending on how the guitar is built and how it’s set up, bracing can have a big impact on how it sounds (called the bracing pattern).
Bracing patterns come in a variety of shapes and sizes. The most popular and long-lasting pattern on steel-string acoustic guitars is “X” bracing, which is named after the two braces that cross in the middle of the pattern to form an “X.”
Advanced “X” Bracing System by Jasmine
However, not all “X” bracing designs are made equal. The “Advanced X Bracing” system from Jasmine employs a “forward-shifted” “X” bracing pattern that brings the braces closer to the soundhole, resulting in a brighter, more open sound with better note clarity and detail.
The scalloped quartersawn bracing gives great stability and lets the top vibrate more freely, resulting in a richer sound. This amazing combination is completed by a solid rosewood bridge plate, which provides exceptional balance and note separation.
At its core, the NEX guitar body is a scaled-down Jumbo. It offers a smooth balance to the tone that nicely accompanies voices.
