Buildoff - Rejoining the back
I skipped a whole important step on the buildoff guitar, so this is out of order. The whole point of removing the back was to rebrace it, because I wasn't happy with the job I had done on it. And the back had started to separate along the glue seam, so I took it all the way apart. I had to add some "wings" onto the lower bout since I had to remove material from the center joint, and also I had cut a little too close when I cut the outside perimeter of the back.
