I've got a question about bracing I'm sure a few of you are much more qualified/experienced to answer than me. I wanted to know what concrete differences to tone/feel a four brace Selmer-type guitar will have as opposed to a more normal 4-brace.
I'm just interested in what you might call "straight Selmer" designs here, whatever that may mean. It seems that people put these guitars in a special place, maybe because Django reputedly played one, and because they are relatively rare, but I'd like to know what actual concrete difference it makes.
Can anyone help? I guess there are other design implications, but if you had two otherwise identical guitars - to the extent that that is possible - one with five and one with four braces, could you say what the tonal differences would be?
