    what the hell are the measurements in??
    inches centimeters millimeters what O.O
    oh and anyone owning this guitar could you please draw on the pdf the dimensions of the complete guitar, not just the highest length and width and thickness?
    or telling me would do too
    thanks

    it's drawn in mm - dimensioned in cm

    the conversion to pdf shrank it slightly. scale up 101.6513348%

    the fret scale is gibson rule of 18 calculation so most all the fret calculators online will not match the the numbers.

    but you're looking to make a thunderbird bass?

    look here:
    http://www.gitarrebassbau.de/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=6&start=0

    and find GibsonTBird.pdf

    drawn 34" scale

    Hello,
    I'm new to the forum and I can't seem to find a pdf print of a Thin line tele! I don't care if it's metric or inch. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks, Adrian

    not sure if this is the appropriate place to ask, but is the G&L ASAT bass body the same(ish) as the ASAT or Tele guitar?

    ...I have asked a couple times about ASAT bass plans.

    Also, if anyone uses foxit reader (free), there's a print feature for large files called "tile large pages" where it basically prints it out for you, with an adjustable amount of overlap.

    Don't know if the new version of adobe has this feature too.

    hi everyone,
    a newbie here. I bought from a local guy, about two yrs ago, a one piece alder strat body but did not drill any screw holes for the bridge, neck mount or pickguards.

    will 57 plan work on the body that i have...sorry to say but idk if he cut the body according to the 57. i think he said he cut it according to American Standard.

    if 57 will work, does anyone have a pdf that can help me with the holes?

    thanks!

    By any chance does anyone know where I could find a pickguard template for a Squier Vintage Modified Mustang?

    Happened upon a stripped body and want to make a pickguard in a non standard color. The only templates I've been able to find are for American Mustang guards and they are way off. Supposedly the CIJ '65 Reissues use the same pickguard as the Squier, but I can't find a template for them either.

    Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    Hello all, New to the forum but have looked for a bit around the site. I like how everyone is polite and helps. Its hard to find good help these days, with everyone bashing people and whatnot. I noticed some people asking for .pdfs on specific models...Im actually looking for a Ibanez JS1000 body pdf. I have one but the size if really off, it prints on 11x17 paper but the body isnt the right way. Hard to explain...the paper is portrait but the guitar design is landscape resulting in a bad size. Like i said new to site, and I feel Im rambling in order to say...hey, wondering if anyone has a good JS1000 plan.

    Thanks...
