      It will be an electric tenor guitar.
      Basically a clone of a Eastwood Guitar Warren Ellis Signature.
      I have the body shape cut, but sure about the neck dimensions.

        The Warren Ellis has a very wide fingerboard for a tenor - some people like them but they're not really to my taste. My preference is 32mm at the nut and 38mm at the 12th fret. Depth at the nut should be about 17mm (without fingerboard) and at the nut about 24mm. Since 17mm is probably thicker than you want the headstock you'll probably have to use a volute.

        I make my heels 25mm deep and use washers rather then a neck plate.

        Standard tenor scales are 23" and 21", with 23" more popular that 21" for guitarists. I use 22.5" as it's the same as a Tele scale guitar at the second fret so really easy to do the fret slots, and it takes some of the tension off the high A which always feels overly tight on vintage tenors.

      Hey fantastic idea for the covering.
      I had been agonizing for sometime now on what to do.
      But my question is about your tenor guitar build you mention.
      I'm doing one also but am having difficulties with the neck itself.
      Do you have a plan for the neck itself or the measurements you used?
      Again thanks for solving my covering problem.
      You da man!

        I don't have a plan but can help with measurements. What style of tenor are you making? Have you played a tenor before? If you can post a picture of how you're doing the body I can probably talk you through how I'd approach the neck.
