Bracing pattern.

Rosette. Let's take a look inside!

Back-Upper Transverse bar.

Back-Waist bar and lining.

Back-Beveled back reinforcement strip.

Top-Heel block and upper transverse bars. This photo was shot into a mirror. Note John's signature and date. He actually writes them backwards so that in the reflection of a mirror it appears to be correct and not backwards.

Top-Close up of upper transverse bars.

Top-John's second signature written normal and not backwards which is why it appears backwards in this mirror shot.

Top-Treble side bracing.
