howdy eric i dont have a pic of the inside of the arturo acoustic but i do have a pic of the inside of another that i did almost the same way that is not an acoustic and dont have the center soundhole. this pic i talk of is on a build called the uneeda/downunder and its on page 5 of my pics.its basicly a brace that goes from side to side of the box where the end of the neck is resting in a notch that is cut into that brace that goes from side to side. hope this idea helps you to get the results you are looking for.if you have any specific questions you would like to ask i would be glad to help out.

Thanks, Eric.   Glad to have you for a nation friend.   8 degrees here in Iowa.  Probably too cold to go out in the shop.  :(

Eric,  I checked out your page after seeing Cris Portillo Jr's latest  video with one of your guitars.  He is a super adertisment for you.  I have seen your photos and comments, but until taking a good look, did not realize what a good builder you are.   Very nice!
