Her is an experimental SS recently built with the parallel/lattice braced top. The mid range was very good, but the bass response was less than hoped for. After daily playing I knew it would not get more balanced. The X brace/lattice brace top is my standard bracing pattern and has produced my best sounding SS's by far. It is 3A sitka, very tight annular rings and lots of medullary rays showing. The box is zebra wood with an adjustable cherry neck. Cherry is very dimensionally stable and beautiful too. The original top is removed and the new top ready for glue up. Russ Parker
