Martin Guitar Bracing Patterns

With so many variations on their bracing available, choosing the style right for you can seem like challenge. This week we're going to break down different bracing styles and see what makes each one unique. 

"Undoubtedly the most popular bracing pattern Martin uses is their 'X' bracing. Found on the majority of Martin instruments, the X bracing was first developed in the 1850s. This 'X' bracing took the place of the more traditional fan bracing used by European guitar builders at the time. While maybe not as ideal for the gut strings used during this period, as the market changed and players started demanding louder instruments, Martin's sturdier 'X' bracing allowed for an easier transition to the higher tension steel strings necessary to achieve that. "
