I think it's has been said before..."you can never have enough clamps".

Very true - I think I could do with some more to be honest!

Yeah, an 8” machine methinks? Will do lots of good things for you :) I have a very similar one.

Yup, 8" looks about right. Needs a bit of a clean up and possibly some new blades, but can't complain when it's free!

Small update - neck is nearly there, will update with pics when it's a bit further along 🙂 started on the cavities, and pre-wiring the rather special preamp courtesy of @mhoss32 - more info to follow!

Routed the neck pocket - scary stuff. I'm still a bit twitchy. It's not perfect but I'm quite pleased for a first attempt!
