Ok after the joint test fail I decided to get a new set of body blank clamps. The 20 year old ponies were great but the 2 cheap clamps were useless. Oh the joint test... I grabbed one side of the blank and wacked it against the floor of the garage, twice. Sounded really good the first swing, nice ring, sustain, overall good tone. The second swing it snapped right on the joint. That is the example of a bad joint.
Roughed the top in. Still not sure this is the top for this guitar but for now it is.
