I wanted to make my next guitar with a really thin top, but I think I might have gone to far. I'm at less than .100 without braces attached.  Will I be able to brace it up without it collapsing under string tension?


What's the thinnest anyone here has successfully acheived?


Thanks in advance,


Doug Collins

I like your attitude and spirit of adventure Topher!  But it's too late, I scrapped the top.  The problem for me is my engineering variables are too small a sample for any conclusive results.  But I'm pretty sure I would have exceeded optimization with this top.

Thanks for the encouragement anyway,
