    Hope that one does not break BOBBO.

    One question? does the edges need to be that rounded? how does a 59 jackplate look like?

    Nico.

    BOBBO-I think down here in Custom and LC, there are fewer owners of Historics. They are not absent, but just not the same base as the first two or three Sub-Forums up above. Since many of us cannot lay out that kind of moola, we fool ourselves into thinking we can build one; some of us can, and some can't really build one. And, of course, the investment in good wood, hardware and electronics turns out to be a good start on the price of an Historic-if tools have to be bought, it can easily equal street price for one. Crazy, aren't we? Ole'Lefty

    It's probably 1/2 inch. That's the standard on all LPs, right?
