deets #5 (part 3) gluing

i've done all i can with this guitar and now we glue this monster back together. i only own a few clamps and a real guitar builder would not be proud at this sad display. 

heres a closer look at the new wood. not too shabby. 

here is susan. she inspects everything i do. i sanded down the sides of the guitar. i figured it would be easier to reapply stain than trying to match the old one. 

susan is now examining the new deeper binding channel that i cut. 

susan also really likes binding. here we are working as a team. 

here she is waving to the camera.

almost done. i use the glue and tape method.  

and here she is all taped up. now we wait for the glue to dry.
