Default Cutaway to neck block

Dry clamping the Brazilian Rosewood cutaway side to the Honduran Mahogany neck block. This is done to align the side to the neck block. Once it’s where Mark wants it to be, he installs two small indexing pins next to the clamp. You can see the convexity in the side that matches the neck block curvature.

Mark glues the Brazilian Cutaway cutaway side to the neck block with slow set structural epoxy. This is done out of the mold so that he can apply clamps more easily. The pins maintain alignment. This will stay clamped for 24 hours.
