I have checked out an impressive used lattice-top guitar ( wood-lattice, not carbon ), about 10 years old, with a thin cedar top.
My concern is that I have noticed the guitar top is pretty much twisted around the bridge. You know, from bridge towards the edge it is bumps up, while from the bridge to the soundhole it is much suppressed inwards, creating an big "S" shape when looked from the side of the top.
I dont have a photo, but i guess that the maximum distance from a theoretical straight line would be between 0.5 to 1.0 cm ! I worry that the top may get worse twisted over time or even worse, brake ( ? ). Is my concern right, is it as risky as it looks to me ? What are your thoughts?
