This is a vacuum-powered holding fixture. Vacuum is supplied by an automoive vacuum pump through plastic tubing to a hole in the center. There is a vacuum gage to monitor the holding power and a shutoff to remove vacuum to reposition the guitar body. The black stuff is closed cell automotive weather striping stuck to the plexiglass.

The holding power is awesome. I can lift the entire workbench with the guitar body.
