bring an accurate scale and measure a couple known measurements before you pay for it.
Did anyone post this site yet?
Those are the same as the templates in this thread. This thread was the source.
I have some trouble with a Blackguard build.....
Which type of Tele the Tdowns plan is based ? Was it taken from an 1950-55 Telecaster ?
Can anybody point me to a plan for such a vintage project, please ?
Revision E is the most recent of the Tdowns drawings and is in post 585 of this thread. You may want to read the link I posted in your earlier thread. What you really want doesn't exist. there is nothing any better than this particular drawing done by Terry Downs and Ed Hawley. I've been here at this forum over 20 years and I think I would know if one was available.
thank you, I understand !
But is there any knowledge about different body shapes through the years ?
I don't mean the changes upper body/neck transition area , router hump...
Even the differences in sanding do not matter.
I wonder if there were significant changes in design, such as width of the cutaway or width of the horn ?
There must have been someone comparing a early ´50´s guitar to a ´52 RI from the early ´80´s, for example ? Those are said to be the most correct RI´s ?
Sigh, because of production reasons almost no two Teles are alike. There is no holy grail THE one. It's a slab board production guitar, some great, some good and some suck. Just build what you want how you want and don't sweat all this esoteric BS. Geeeeeez
I guess I'd direct you to look at the Blackguard book and see if you see any consistency between the serial numbers. That might answer that question.
