Here is a more nuts-and-bolts procedure: Building a body mold. Larry uses an inner mold. Larry feels it is better to build a guitar with relaxed sides rather than having to force it into the exact spec contour. Once the sides are bent on the proper form, Larry matches key width dimensions to the spec body shape. There is usually a very small amount of variation in the contour of the sides from the spec shape between the key measurement points. Larry then builds the inner body mold to the resulting shape.
