Hi J,
Well I personally have never made a guitar, but I gather that when you glue the front and back on to the sides they are useful then. Because the wood is so thin, the clamping pressure is not spread very far so you need lots of clamps, right up one against the other, all the way round, to ensure a tight bond. If those clamps are made of metal, the whole assembly becomes very heavy. By using clamps like these, the assembly is much lighter and you don’t need a second mortgage either!
