Good afternoon fellow x-carve luthiers. I just finished making an 83 Gibson Flying V (along with videos of the process for a tutorial on guitar modeling), and I decided to share it with you all as I did with my previous fretboard modeling tutorial
There’s a DXF in there too if you’re just looking for the templates, and it includes tenon templates for manually routing the guitar. (It’s also included at the bottom of this post!)
This was modeled in Fusion360 - I will post the finished article/videos here soon for anyone interested. You can see the fretboard modeling process on my site here.
I provide a ton of free guitar templates on my website, and I have a ton more that I haven’t gotten around to publishing yet. If you’re looking for something, feel free to ask. I always appreciate feedback from the lutherie community and I try to help wherever possible!
