From Tyler: “This is not standard but was necessary on this build. The back was thinner then normal to start, so in order to be able to tune to the frequency that I needed, I chose this bracing pattern to increase stiffness so that I had room to bring it down to my target.”
"Dream Guitars is a fantastic place! I’ve never been to a shop that had so many exquisite instruments available. It’s so important to know all of your options when it’s time to purchase a high-end instrument. The staff is friendly to work with, and their insight about the inventory is extensive. This is one of the best places in the country to buy a guitar. The repair services are fantastic as well. I’ve had electronics installed on high-end instruments and minor tweaks made as well; each service made the instruments even better."
