Anyone? Snakehead template PDF?
Has anyone got the Terry Downs tele template converted to metric measurements?
The thread here is truly *at least* a goldmine - I wish I could contribute to it somehow.
I intent to build a version of one of my old favourites - an old Newburgh classic Steinberger GM. I will go with a set-neck I'll make out of Brazilian rosewood - to my own liking - and make the body out of honduras mahogany from early 60's. I'll make the bridge route for the S Trem using my own measurements from the bridge. If someone would have a decent "close enough" version of the body outline - I'd be happy as a puppy. I don't know for sure if Spirits and old Steinies are different, but I'd appreciate finding a traced thingy of the old one - there aren't that much GM bodies lying around where I live.
Sorry for making the short story long. Thanks for your attention.
Metric Tele Plan
Here you go.
Is the "Spirirt" close enough to what you are looking for?
I don't really know how big of a difference there is for the Newburghs. It definitely is good enough for me if I can't find an old one for reference.
This is what I found for the Spirit.
Thanks glen smith - that was quick.
Unfortunately (for me) The Spirit in question in the PDF here is the GL a.k.a the broomstick type while I was mainly looking for the GM a.k.a the Mike Rutherford type. It's still a good addition for the thread. I might be able to make a Newburgher equivalent of the GL later for the thread.
Sorry, that's all I could find.
No worries. All addition to the thread are good.
glen smith you're a saint, the most frustrating thing about this forum is the preponderance of imperial dimensions. Even more so as the imperial measurements are often expressed as a base 10 relation, i.e. 1.75 inches. I can work it all out but, for the life of me, can't understand why anyone persists with a system so convoluted. I was taught imperial as a schoolchild but then Australia went metric in '66 and things became straighforward.
Possibly you could explain why 25.5 is confusing and 647.7 isn't.
I can't understand why someone would come here and take a backhanded slap at the folks that are trying to help or the guy who penciled the original drawings.
Hey, relatively new here, still lurking and trying to learn as much info as possible. As such, I don't really have anything to contribute yet. However, I have gotten several files here printed (thanks to everyone) and thought I would pass along my experience. I don't have a FedEx/Kinko's anywhere close but I tried a blueprint firm. I can email the files to them and they print them off for around $1.25 a sheet. That's a few dollars cheaper than other places people have listed. Hope that helps someone. Going to try to start a 59 Danelectro this weekend.
Anybody here got any mandolin plans??
I'll take anything: F-style, A-style, Mandocaster, Mandobird, etc.
Thanks. I love this thread!
Does anyone have a plan for a Harmony Stratotone H47 or other? It would be great if I could at least get a body outline.
Thanks for the special! I've been trying to reverse engineer the 2 pup version from a 1 pickup drawing.
Any chance anyone has a non-reverse firebird set of plans? I would GREATLY appreciate it
And how hard is it (for a novice) to switch a plan from 24.75 scale to 25.5? Is it possible? Is it really just moving the bridge down a bit (I doubt it)...
