    I'm building an accoustic and intend to use nylon strings.

    First question - what difference would cross bracing make as opposed to fan bracing? I realsie that Fan is more traditional for Nylon but I just have a hunch that x-bracing would work (No real reason for the hunch - hence the question!)

    I'm using Spruce for the top/sides and Maple for the back, I plan to use spruce for the braces - but I have some mahogany and I thought that might work well too.
