If you are flexible regarding soundboard wood, have a look. Although this makes me feel like a used-car salesman, I really do feel you will not find a better lattice guitar for the price.
It isn't a lattice bracing, but a radial bracing. Very different.

There is also a used Woodfield at La Galerie des Luthiers in Lyon, but I never tried any Woodfield. I did read very positive comments on his guitars though.
I also tried a very good lattice Rousu near Cologne (Köln), but the top wasn't exactly cedar. It was redwood and sounded like a cedar to me.
