The Ed Hawley tele neck drawing dxf is in here with just about most common drawings you would want. If you cannot use CAD yet, I would encourage you to learn, as it opens up a whole new world of instrument building.
Here’s a thread that I developed to learn how to model a neck. I’m self taught, so it is pretty basic stuff. If you want to cut the perimeter and holes, that is pretty simple. There are free 3d cad programs out there.
A whole lot of guitar drawings:
If you are using a regular hotrod, you can delete the curved vintage style rod and replace it with a straight slot that is 7/32 wide by 7/16" deep. The low profile one probably has a different set of dimensions if it anything like those other blue wrapped rods. I installed 5 of those and found that I spent more time fiddling with the 2-3 different routs necessary to install it, that it wasn’t worth the cost savings over the original hotrod. This is my latest guitar made the last month. It is Kay 142 inspired. It’s all hand done except the pickguard and rosewood bridge which I cnc’d.
I did this Silvertone inspired Dano type in March.
The car comes out of the garage 5/1, so that means I can get to the Xcarve and put the mods on I bought this winter and get back to my one piece F style maple neck project that I stopped working on in the late Fall.
