I've glued on the back braces, glued the back to the sides, and trimmed off the excess. The neck and tail blocks are undoubtedly way heavier than they need to be.

Here is a proposed layout for the top bracing. It's based on https://www.portlandguitar.com/blogs/fe ... ng-science for whatever that's worth.

One problem is what to do for a bridge plate.
