The fingerboard clamps that LMII and StewMac sell are really an item called RV multi-clamps (yes -- recreation vehicle). Walmart, Kmart. Meijer etc. have them in the plumbing and/or camping departments.

Yep, saw them this past weekend. Will be going back closer to "need" time. Have sooo many C clamps to get first.

I had pretty good luck using very large rubber bands. I looped two together so that when laid in a straight line they were about 12"" long. I put about 5 - 6 wraps per rubber band set around the neck, at the final wrap tucking the end under one of the tight wraps. Repeated this every third fret. I supplemented it with a few clamps using shim stock to put also put pressure on theradiused edges. Cheap and effective!
