    Whoever cleaned up that blueprint did a fantastic job. Could hardly read the measurements on the original floating around. How accurate is that to the original 62's, any of the measurments off?

    This is a superb 100% accurate repro of a totally inaccurate blueprint (-;
    It's way off the original 62 in many ways... but it's OK for the volume CAD plan.

    Sorry, I posted that on a short break from raking leaves and was apparently in a hurry to get back outside.

    does that outline come close to what you find? = does that outline closely match the shapes of pre-cbs strats from which you've made templates?

    In other words, I was wondering if you've printed it out full size and checked it against anything.

    This is NOT an exact pre-CBS blueprint.
    It's the same old 1982 Fender 62 RI drawing that was updated a bit by one of the members here and I think will be great for anybody who wishes to build a CAD drawing for the volume calculation.
    I made my strat templates on a pin router directly to the MDF to get a 100% accurate duplication. I don't even have any files... just the master templates which I use to cut the 3/4" working templates from...

    yeah... too much to ask (-;

    if anyone wants to calculate the basses for preeb, there's pdfs on this page from some guy named superfly that collects them on the web. if you can import pdfs, it might be a decent start.

    Gil, sorry for the late reply. I've been very busy with college this month and I don't think I can do the volume calculation right now, you see, I'm not very skilled with CAD software so it takes me some time to get this things working :D

    I'll be ready (hopefully!) in the beginning of december so I'm gonna give it a try then ;)


    By the way, your build threads are awesome!!! :oops:
