IMO everyone should work out their own dimensions for the important stuff. Blindly following a drawing from the internet and using it to cut expensive wood is not a good idea. If you learn what the critical dimensions are it will serve you very well down the road.

dickjonesify - he's having trouble with the neck, I believe, and that is just the body. I'll check and see if I have a drawing later to post.

Regards PEter.

True. That’s why I would wait to place the bridge.

Here’s a neck drawing I have.

Thats the second time I saw this plan linked recently, but the links in that forum post are dead

Hmmm. Someone planning a Tele build perhaps? Maybe the Maple Leafs will win the Stanley Cup this year!

LOL.

Can anyone imagine me reading that far into a thread in order to get plans for a telecaster? :)

Everyone. Its your guilty pleasure. And, when you finally build one - because like the sun rises and sets its a given - you'll be asking yourself why it took so long. Resistance is futele.. Its in your futeleure. I'm just tele-ing you.

Well, I know the entire USA has gone off the rails this year, but there are still some fundamental laws of nature that have not been abridged :)

If it were not for the fact that I live clean and sober I'd say "Give me 10 bucks worth of whatever you are smokin" :)

Maybe you just need the right headstock.....I mean since you've spent all that time re-jigging your pre CBS strat headstock template you could put one of them on a Tele.....or something like this:

See now I could get my head around one like that, but that's because it doesn't have any of the worst features (IMO) of the Tele (headstock, pickups, bridge) and I think most might argue that those are "defining" features :)
