You can never use too many clamps.  I use a guide pin to keep the veneer pieces from shifting around when gluing to the headstock.


A long standing problem for me is getting the body as it wraps around the waist area of the mold to meet the mold.  I’ve tried a new waist clamp to address the problem.


I’ve installed all the kerfing, and I will release from the mold to see if the shape is retained as I don’t think I can get these spreaders out of the guitar once the back and sides are on (very small soundhole).
