In this video, Robert O'Brien of O'Brien Guitars addresses a problem often encountered when building guitars- keeping the back aligned when closing the box. It is easy for the back to end up with a back that is not perfectly straight, which can be a real problem if you have an inlay or a center line that no longer lines up. Robert uses UFO Thick CA glue in this simple but effective method which is useful in other situations as well.
