For an acoustic guitar, braces and soundboard braces are as important as the top or back they’re integrated in. The importance of an instrument bracing remains in the basic function that they provide for the entire instrument structure and sound.
Braces have a fundamentally structural function, while soundboard braces organize the mode of vibration of the top. Depending on the top properties, braces will be designed with a different height, width or thickness. And according to its number and position, the final bracing can have a fan pattern, a parallel or radial pattern or other kind.
