I'm curious about something: Have either/both of the techniques of double-tops and/or lattice bracing made any measurable headway to other realms of luthiery, beyond the Classical sphere? What about sound ports or elevated fingerboards? Are there lattice flamenco guitars, or doubletop lutes, or ukes, or even soundported dreadnaught or OM type steel strings? I'd expect there'd naturally be SOME experimentation, but have any of these modern CG luthiery designs crossed elsewhere to a real degree?
