For guitars, our work usually gives better response, crisp attacks, longer sustain,
and a more open and sweet general sound.  Much of this comes from simply
reducing noise.  This work was developed from the violin work.   The general
steps are:

1.  Get the setup straight.
2.  Check the top and back pitch relationship.
3.  Perform any more substantial bracing reworking.
4.  Go through the sides, kerfing, and blocks.
5.  Perform detailed bracing, plate, bridge, saddle, and soundhole work
6.  Check and adjust as required for bass/treble balance and overall brilliance
and projection.
