I'd read somewhere that Maccaferri's first grande bouche guitars were actually meant to be classical guitars. If this is true, then the original bracing was for nylon strings. Correct?
Do the more recent grande bouche guitars (such as my Gitane D-500) have a bracing like the original design?
I know that putting nylons on a normal steel-string guitar doesn't get the greatest results (though I know some who do it and enjoy the results) -- but if the original design was for nylons ... then shouldn't we be putting nylons on our grande bouche Selmacs?
Does this make any sense?
