    I was sure this would be easy to find, but I'm not finding one. Does anyone have a vector drawing of a tele body that I can use in Corel? I really only need the 2D top view, to draw a pickguard to fit.

    I'm not sure if this will help but all the files are in here for the most part. If you can use a Jpeg, just find what you need in google images, take a screen shot, and put it in paint. Then scale it up in Corel.

    Inkscape is free and will vectorize any image.

    Thanks, I might try that. I can always draw on paper and scan it to size and vectorize, but I was hoping to just draw in the software for convenience.

    I'll try it. I don't really know much about Corel. I'm used to solid works, but the laser etcher at work is set up with Corel.

    I use illustrator but can export .eps .ps and many other formats that I'm sure could import. If need be, I could send u a 1200 dpi .time that Corel would surely import.

    I pulled in something off the internet, but haven't checked it for scale. If you have something that's scaled and and ready to work that'd be great.

    PM me with your email address. I downloaded inkscape a few days ago. I just opened up a pdf of the tele body and it appears to be to scale.
