Regarding guitar-making:

They are very versatile clamps in general. They can be used
to clamp backs and tops to the sides of a guitar if you have
a lot of them. In making guitars you may need to use a lot
of clamps with not a lot of pressure on each clamp, so weight
of the clamps can be an issue. Luthier clamps aren’t very
heavy so the weight doesn’t become overwhelming.

With wooden jaws the clamps aren’t as likely to bruise wood
accidentally. A luthier clamp can be set one-handed with
some practice as well.
