P-Bass Body Blank Dimensions

Can someone tell me what the absolutely minimum dimensions for a P-Bass (Not tele style, but about a 62-64 model) body blank is? I have a 1.75x13x21 SWEET piece of alder, but the 13 concerns me!

Thanks guys!

Edit: these were the purported dimensions, but after measuring for myself, it comes to 1 25/32 x 13 3/8 x 21. So, I have an extra 3/8. I know this is good for a tele, but I don't have my P-bass templates or plans yet. Should this be OK?

judging from a fender pdf, you should be fine.

Does anyone have digital drawing files for P-Bass or J-Bass (*.dwg, *.3dm, *.dxf, etc.)? I'd need the necks, too. Someday I'd like to build one of those, if I can ever get back to throwing wood chips.

I found a Tele-bass-neck pdf & a jazz bass pdf, and put them together into a rhino file. Here's the pdf. but if anyone has a digital accurate drawing of any fender bass, please post.
