TAPERING THE BODY
(See Fig.
The bottom lining, i.e. to which the back of the guitar is later fitted, can be two lengths of spruce or sycamore and these are fitted to the sides in a similar manner as that used for the top lining.
Although the outer edge of this lining should be perfectly square to the edge of the side, the top edge (the edge farthest away from that which will later take the back of the instrument) should be nicely tapered off with chisel and fine glasspaper. (See Fig. 11.)
Before fitting the bottom lining, both sides of the guitar at the upper bout should be slightly tapered towards the top block. This should be done by starting the taper from the upper curve of the waist so that the side view of the sides show a slight curve as in Fig. 10. Be sure that the taper on each side is exactly the same.
