Classical Guitars: Adding the Sides (4 of 9)

This photo highlights the Spanish heal construction method used on all Trinity classical guitar built by luthier Jim Holler. The shavings inside the guitar are from the back binding being fit for the back assembly. achined flat and parallel.
The traditional bracing pattern is evident. The blocks used to join the top to the back are made of basswood. Basswood has very poor acoustic qualities and as such is perfect for this job. The concept is to isolate the top from the sides acoustically. The basswood being such a poor transmitter of sound helps to keep the sound energy in the top.
