Breedlove "C-22"

Well, I can't let this one go without comment!

First, here's a view from another angle:

That big thing hanging down is bolted to the bridge, and has a rod that just pushes lightly against the endblock. This unique arrangement completely eliminates the tendency of the bridge to "roll" forward under the string tension. This extra support is how Breedlove can get away with the radical scalloping of the main top braces without structural difficulties.

Breedlove also makes a more conventionally braced top, as on this "SJ-25X/W"
