    Hey all. Haven't been around for a while. Have been so busy working on other folks' guitars (still am) that I have not had time to do any building.
    I have a friend who's grandson is about 6 years old. The boy is drawn to anything to do with music or instruments. In a few more years he'll be old enough to want to actually learn, and I think he will. I would love to build an electric for him, a little bit at a time, in anticipation of this.
    A simple strat or tele style would be fine. Any one know of any plans like this? Or alternatively, anyone ever done this on their own, and can you give be advice on body dimensions, scale length, or anything else you think might me pertinent to this?
    Much appreciated.

    Where can you get templates nowadays? Terry Downs has been inactive as was pointed out by Becky Lawrence the other day.

    The only one I found is the one posted above. It seems to be the only one out there and that's what John used.
