Kiso classical #70 bracing seemed a bit heavy

This guitar sounded nice but seemed like it had more potential....wanted to be opened up more. So I did a couple of things to it.
I shaved a couple of the braces (as many as I could reach) with sandpaper and an exacto knife. Then I filed the soundhole wider. Seems like it made a bit of a difference in sound quality. The guitar is a bit heavy...heavier than the #700 Nagoya anyway. Beautiful guitar though. Nice woods - mahogany back and sides/cedar top (laminate I think)
