    In case it helps anyone, I traced (most of) the T. Downs body drawing rev E into Fusion 360, and I am sharing it here:


    The only things I know are missing are:

    1. the routed cavity for the neck PU wire to get to the control cavity; this is because I prefer to construct my guitars in such a way that they can be pickguard-free, in case I get a really nice piece of wood for the body.
    2. The routed channel between the neck PU and the neck socket; same reason.
    3. the strap button pilot holes.

    Things I have consciously added, because they help me understand what I can change and what I can't:
    1. AFAIK accurate model of the control plate (no switches/pots/knobs)
    2. Approximate model of the bridge (no saddles/saddle-mounts)

    Here are some renders, so you can judge if I got it right (pretty sure I did - the measurements line up exactly ;-)):
