...very interesting thread, folks ...and a nice looking, fat-necked 12 ... one comment on mirrors:  the best idea I've seen, and used, is to get two small rectangular mirrors, tape them together so they fold like a book, slip them in the sound hole, open up and insert light or flashlight .. of course, w/ today's technology, small inspection video cameras are becoming more and more affordable, so ask your dentist for one of those  :o  (side note..my daughters in her third year of dental sch, so I can see a little video camera in my future :P )

You can also get what I think is called rope light. We used to use it some when I was in the tradeshow/display industry, and I've also sen some luthiers use it. It is a clear solid plastic strand, about 3/4 inch in diameter with wires and a light embedded in it every few inches. You just cut whatever length you want, cap the ends with special caps, one with a cord and plug, and you're good to go. A 1 to 2 foot length can easily be threaded into a guitar body providing plenty of light wherever you want to look.

I also like the hardware/auto store mirrors that have a plunger in the handle that allows you to manipulate the angle of the mirror.

All for now.
