a bit more progress on these, most of my attention has been on finishing a custom 7 string classical guitar for a client, but these are going great too! Someone asked about how I glue my tops on, so here it is, it's a pretty common system: basically, i have a sheet of 3/4 plywood with some holes drilled into it. I place my body with a garbage bag cutout underneath so i don't accidentally glue the body to the jig (again) spread on some glue once the top is on, I index it using a couple drill bits as pins. this will stop the top from moving around when we clamp. then I pop the second piece of plywood on, and tighten all the bolts evenly. Once the bolts are tight, i remove the drill bits and clean them off. here are all the tops back from the laser cutter (LOOK HOW HAPPY THEY ARE!) this is the best way to get 100% perfect grain matched pickup covers and stuff. and a pile of bobbins that i've been working on, ready to assemble with magnets, then off to be wound!
