Working on my second kit, one from John Hall (Blues Creek Guitars). First, let me say he'd be a very rich man if he charged me for all the questions I've asked so far. Kudo's to John!
I'm at the stage where I need to radius my sides. My first kit was a Stew-Mac, and I used the sanding stick in their instructions on my first kit. I am not entirely sure I got the angles correct when I made it, however, as it required a lot of force to get the back on tight.
Is there an inexpensive, more accurate, alternative to a sanding stick? I've read about radius dishes -- are they worth it?
