Heres the latest...
I spotted a design issue with my placement of the control knobs cos two of them are right on the hump of the carve

Obviously like that neither the toggle or vol knob will sit correctly
So I outlined the area I need to flatten and go at it with my sander
And hey presto
It means ive had to change the shape of the carve a bit in that area but I think it looks ok and once the hardware is on you wont see it as much anyway
Then I gave the body a good sanding with 400 grit sandpaper to clean up any scratches
