Yea...and that was the initial challenge. H grew up in Germany. In hindsight, I should have brought my metric tapes out as I work in metric in the shop and for locating boxes horizontally and vertically on sheets, it would have been just fine. My bad...I think that measured 36,5 inch plus 1.75/8th on the comma.
i have seen some telecasters of the members of status quo that had those LP/SG bridges on thereMe and my luthier buddy spent some time yesterday fretting the Padauk fingerboard of my Knooren Custom Strat. The tape is meant to sketch out where the studs for the wrap around tail is going to go.

Today I lacquered the fingerboard to saturate the Padauk since it sucks up moisture like crazy.
This is a level-PRS custom guitar, make no mistake, and I'm grateful I got it for free.
Here's the guitar from the back.i have seen some telecasters of the members of status quo that had those LP/SG bridges on there
did you set this neck with an angle or do you route the body to lower that bridge?
Jim, you are making great progress on your shop. Congratulations! You'll be up and running soon.Made good progress on the sheetrock today...while thoroughly enjoying tunes all day from WXPN.org (which I support) via an Echo Dot. That little thing sounded pretty darn amazing in the big space so I'm anticipating the big system is going to sound grand. TDPRI Forum member I_make_my_own is coming over tomorrow to help with the rest of the sheet rock work, so I expect that by the end of the day, it will be pretty near to be done.

Wow...that really bites relative to the builder going "milk glands up". I sure hope you didn't have too much money on the table at this point. That flooring looks great! Nice choice for sure. Same for the French Cleat system.Jim, you are making great progress on your shop. Congratulations! You'll be up and running soon.
My shop progress has slowed, my site foreman quit the builder, then his replacement quit, then the builder declared bankruptcy and disappeared, leaving my shop and several home owners out in the cold and multiple subcontractors unpaid. Since then I am slowly getting the last details finished up. Today the assembly room got vinyl flooring thanks to a little help from my brother, the tool room is next. I'm hoping to be ready to move in my tools by years end. Thing definitely move at their own pace in Tennessee.
