    I've been looking around this section quite a bit. I'm going to start a tele build over the winter. I can't seem to find drawings, or measurements for building a tele neck. Is there any prints out there for doing this?

    I have a excellent pdf of the headstock that I found either on here or somewhere on the web. I can't figure out how to get it on here, but if you contact me on the private messages part and give me your email addy, I'll email it to you. In fact, somewhere I have the whole neck with dimensions but I can't find it. I'll keep looking later today.
