The Bracing System:
The JD37 also has Jasmine’s Advanced X Bracing System under its solid top.This bracing system features a forward-shifted "X" bracing pattern that moves the center of the X-braces forward and closer to the sound hole, producing a responsive and open sound with clear note definition. The braces are quarter sawn from selected cured spruce, for optimum strength to weight ratio, and are scalloped for the correct to permit the right amount of flexibility. This lets the top vibrate more freely, giving the JD37 a clear and strong sound. This bracing design also has a solid rosewood bridge plate spanning the space beneath the bridge, to ensure a balanced tone with clear note separation.
