    I feel like I should create an archive web site for these. I mean, I have the unlimited hosting space..

    quick question on the fender strat body. Just wanted to double check that the circles with the horizontal line gong through them down at the bridge is for the screws and not to indicate string spacing. I may end up using a different trem, but it wouldn't be able to go that far up.

    I believe those are the 6 screw holes for the vintage style tremolo.

    nearly finished with a blueprint for guitar #2, been drawing in pickups and the bridge, knobs, switches etc to spec. Began wondering if it wouldn't be useful to save some sort of collaborative emachineshop file for posting here with all of the components as others may want to use the same parts and it would save some time in the design process to have the stuff premade.

    Also, I've seen a lot of posts online suggesting putting the bridge pickup at the 48th fret and the neck at the 24th. Some posts claim it is not necessary as the scale changes as soon as you fret, but it seems to be traditional and close to standard on non 24 fret guitars. However, I'm trying to place the single coil in a HSH design (no pickguard) and am noticing it is usually either centered between the neck and bridge or slightly toward the bridge, but not quite to the point of the 36th fret. Was wondering if anyone has a good link to the history of how it was placed as it doesn't seem to follow the standard logic from what I've read. Google didn't give me any clearer of a picture on this.

    here's where I'm presently at, still working out the shape, based off the perfect 10 and some of the moser variations on it, two versions slightly altered. After turning it on it's side "m thinking the lower bout looks pretty high. Also trying to decide with a rosewood headstock vs matching the body. The pieces in the middle are what I'm wondering about sharing.

    also thinking of adding a kickstand that folds down from the non control side.


    EDIT, just noted I put this in the wrong thread, meant to go in the plans - how I make them thread. thinking that is a better fit

    I have been gone for a while; just an FYI that my blueprint archive was offline for a bit (I let my hosting expire in my negligence), should be working again now.

    Sorry Dave; none in my archive, even in the stuff I'm not supposed to share. Is it a totally different body shape than other models?

    Pretty sure the shape is unique to the model. The body is really deep as well, I'll probably trace this one. Thanks for looking though!

    Hi. I need to do a fabrication project to complete my degree in welding technologies. I chose to make a flying v out of stainless steel. I need to see some plans with dimensions so I can make an autocad drawing and feed the #'s into our laser cutter. Of course it's not going to be a functioning guitar, more a work of art. Class restarts Dec.1 and I'll have 10 weeks to finish. The link for the flying v in the plans/blueprints section seems not to be working. Please email me the plans. Thank you

    TKOjams and everyone, I just searched for "Free guitar plans" on the big G and this thread comes up 5th on the list of results.

    Thanks for all the links and your efforts in collecting and sharing them!

    Bookmarked!! :)

    I am a year 11 student and as a part of my individual studies for music I am interested in making a Gibson Hummingbird, I have only found the pick-guard which is better then what I have found anywhere else on the internet. I am just wandering do you have any designs to make a Gibson Hummingbird? You see I will only have one semester to make this guitar and do all the necessary research so it would mean a lot to me if you could get back to me ASAP. Thanks :dude:

    Thanks for these. I'm doing a setup on a 1968 B60 Maton Bindara Acoustic Bass, a rare and beautiful beast, but I'm a little shy of sanding the bridge because I haven't seen many violin style carved compensated bridges and don't want to risk stuffing this one up until I can find a plan for a similar bridge if I fail. If anyone has any ideas I'd be appreciative. The guitar I'm working on can be viewed at matonmuseum.com, then type in B60 as the model in the search box.

    I've never seen a blueprint for Pensa Suhr Standard available online, neither free nor for cash.

    So, I'm tracing and drawing it by myself right now. I can make a PDF. Anyone interested?
    Must admit, it'll have some deviations.
