Beautiful guitar and very clean work Laurent. Questions: 1.) what are "side doublers"?; 2.) what is the thinking behind your treatment of the ends of the UTB? Regards, Pete.

Hi Pete, side doublers are small strips of spruce running on the top side of the rim, under the linings. It makes the rim stiffer under the top.
