some purfling details

This is my favorite purfling scheme. On a blanca its the same just only black and white.
Its also the most difficult one to make. Especially the purling following the bindings on the back. The have to be cut 45 degrees in both ends, so you have to be very accurate. If not it doesnt look good. This one is not perfect but its pretty close and I accept being a human being

my current bracing system

Well, here it is, the bracing system that I use now. Its my own.... Well you can say that there´s nothing new in it. Evereything is traditional and tryed before. But its not a copy. Thats why I call it my own. Its the bracing system that I prefer when it comes to pulsation and feel of the guitar. I like the response. It took me years to understand what the pro players meant when they talked about the feeling. I was always thinking about the sound as the basic point. Well, the sound has to be right, but the feel is more important. If the guitar feels right, then you play well and then YOU sound well. Its actually pretty simple. Its just the other way round as what most not so good players think.
The guitar is number 90.

El abanico

The 5 piece fan bracing also called "el abánico"
Now I have to shave the braces before gluing the trasversal bars and the closing struts
