Interesting stuff.

I'm just wondering why they've paid alot of attention to the bracing and that neck through design...but judging from the use of kerfed linings not much attention has been paid to minimizing leakage of string energy down the sides.

The skeletized bracing.......some comments from Trevor would be welcome on this.

After reading all the past discussions on adjustable necks, I found this an interesting wrinkle in that design. I also wondered if their design would actually stiffen the sides slightly and work to prevent energy leakage.
I think since I have built a few guitars using Trevor's falcate bracing design, and the way it has opened up the voices of the guitars, I am definitely prejudiced towards that design.
I would love to hear Trevors thoughts on this.
