Bruce thanks for being such a clean thinker and good teacher! I did a birds beak in my second and third guitars using the martin style and they worked fine and all but your more straightforward design IS AWESOME! I just busted one out today on a new build and it worked so much better than the more-angles martin style.

Thank you so much.

At the moment I am clamping on the headstock verniers, and soon I will have pictures of that progress.
