Exploded view of guitar body,the top is complete except for cutting the braces to allow the sides to rest on the inside of the guitar top,this will be done after the neck is glued to the top. In preperation for glueing the neck to the top a recess must be cut to allow the fingerboard side of the neck to be flush with the outside of the top this recess must fit perfectly to the interior of the top. Caution this is an angled cut as the neck is at an angle created by the solera to make correct action height. Also as the top is domed it will be slightly curved. Think before cutting the neck do not rush and when cutting allow extra wood for final fitting.
