    I notice that your end blocks have the top and back ends tapered so that they are the width of the lining (or thereabouts). Why the taper? Is this also to increase the vibrating area?

    I have always tapper the end block "top and back" to be the same thickness as the linings- just seems like a sensible idea.

    The head block extension (which is quite long as this is a 12 fret guitar) is tapered so as not to run parallel with the grain lines of the top. It isn't smart to run a line of wood down the grain line of another piece of wood.- this is why cracks down fingerboard edges are common.

    Also, and for the same reasosn mentioned above, I taper my bridge wings slightly - enough to overlap a few grain lines-
