I beleive Mr. Kirn can help....
Thanks for posting this diagram/schematic thingy. It has been very helpful as I work on a body of dubious origin that had some weird routing. I was able to determine where the bridge should go by overlaying your diagram. And I spotted a few places I needed to route better.
Does anyone have an idea or plans for placement of a humbucker at the neck position.
I have a SD Jazz Model that i wanna put in there, but im not sure where to put the pocket.
Is there a standard dimension? Will it match up with the standard dimensions of a pickguard with HB pup?
Thanks Everyone in advance.
There is a link here : http://www.tdpri.com/forum/tele-technical/374686-twin-humbucker-plans-drawings.html#post4743293
Basically, on a conventional template you can use the upper line of the neck SC (the one which is closer to the neck pocket) as a reference for the hb template. That's what I did with mine.
If you don't plan to do your pickguard yourself, it's always better to order it first, so you can see how everything fits on your drawing.
Never knew this existed.
Thanks for all the work put into this. I am just about ready to start my first tele. This will come in handy..
Great, thanks for the advice! I am waiting for all my components to come in the mail, before I make any cuts on my blank.
Bless you gentlemen.. This is going to make my first project endeavor so much easier.
Sometimes it seems like there's too many sorry cow chips out in the internet pasture, and then you run across something like this.
Great work and generous effort to make this available. Thanks, Mr. Downs.
Interesting I was just thinking about building a tele from an old mahogany mantle pc I have. Do you have any of the radius(size and placement) dimensions for it? I dont see any call outs for where any of the body curves would be drawn from.
Very cool. Thanks for sharing your hard work!!
If you mean the round-over radius on the edge it is 0.125".
I took the body drawing by Terry Downs and added neck build information. I have not yet verified all the dimensions but the drawing is to scale (except as noted) and I included a 1" scale verification.
While I've been over this many times, I'm sure I forgot something. Just let me know and I'll make changes as I can. If you want, feel free to verify the dimensions and post any corrections you feel should be made.
I am presently building a Tele-style guitar from scratch and so far everything is working out fine. The neck fit the pocket of a MIM Fender Telecaster body snugly and the pegholes look correct.
The plot size is 42" x 30" as it's the full guitar. This is an image of the plan
The file is too large to post here so here's the link on Google Drive: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B5LkDIAitR55Tm9UNjhPbGtWeEE/edit?usp=sharing This one is for a Hot Rod dual truss rod.
This is the link for the standard truss rod: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B5LkDIAitR55SjRYOHZEclRwd00/edit?usp=sharing
Thanks for sharing, JMo426.
Just today I selected some boards to make my first proper neck, and this will come in handy as a reference.
Your very first post. You are right, these guys are great. But I will warn you. They are like your mother's love. The find something good to comment on no matter how bad the project is. So if you are married have your wife look and your work and give her opinion. If she is like mine she will keep you in the proper prospective.
Just thought I'd say thanks for sharing. +1 for the community
These files have been deleted. There was some minor errors. The drawings I've been working on are mainly for the neck and this thread is for the body, though they are intended to be used together.
All the files from here on out can be found HERE. All update information will be made on this thread: http://www.tdpri.com/forum/tele-home-depot/483205-full-scale-tele-style-plans.html
I have a question ,If I print terry's telecaster PDF file to 34"x22" will the measurements be accurate, because I printed them and instead 0f 15.96, I get 15 13/16 of an inch but I do some random measurements of the printout and some are accurate , I just want to be sure so that the parts I order fit my tele with out any problems ,thanks
The paper dimensions used to plot the drawing don't matter. What matters is the scale. The scale MUST be exactly 1:1. I haven't checked all the dimensions on Terry's drawing but those I have checked are right on. But I used the DWG file to do that and not the PDF file.
Terry's tele drawing are more accurate than the cad drawing that I paid $97.00 for a couple of months ago. I ran a template of each on my cnc today and overlayed the two .Terry's was more accurate .
