btw that was a great review you posted on the L32 Rick
I don't think Jumbos are braced any more sturdily, and the larger surface area may actually be more prone to cracks than smaller guitars, as there is more area to flex on impact. That said, you don't need much force to get the sound, it's more a case of finding what attacks sound right, with the minimum effort applied.
If you are playing that style, you have to accept that it could
happen, and may need repairing, it's not the end of the world, but if it bothers you, you may want to get a cheap second hand 'beater' type guitar to work on this style.
