I have been wanting to do this for a while now, but I finally got my act together. I know many of us have acquired different guitar templates over the years and I wanted to make a thread where we could share them. Try to submit templates that are to scale so we can just take them and print them full size. Note: Please check all templates for accuracy. We can't guarantee every template so check carefully before you build your guitar.

TB 500 Body Template
The templates are in .ai (2 for the body 1 pickguard) and one .cdr (which if I remember correctly is a TB 1000 though I no longer have anything to open it with so....it may just be more TB 500)

No need to thank me- I stole them all from various websites anyway!

*Edit*
Can anybody tell me how to print these full size on A4 paper?
I did try a local printers, they wanted 200! But that was obviously on larger paper.

There's a guy over on TDPRI(JWELLS) that tells how to do right in Adobe.You print it in quarters then tape them together.On a related note, that printshop sure has a high opinion of it's self.You can print those over here at Kinkos for 5$ each,

I will probably never build a guitar from scratch, but a huge thanks for posting this. It's a pretty fantastic resource!

Does anyone have some headstock templates? I have one on my Supersonic pdf but that's it. I have one for the original Starcaster(cock-stock), but it's not to scale. I am trying to figure it out. I am contemplating designing my own headstock base on the Jaguar, Swinger and original Starcaster headstock shapes.

Office Depot $2.99 for a 24" x 30" sheet. You can email them the file or bring in a Cd/disk. I asked last night, they said they can print out of Adobe, but not AutoCad. I don't know if those Adobe pdf will print to scale though, can anyone confirm?

I took the templates of the Supersonic, Mustang, Jazzmaster and Tele to Fedex Kinkos and they printed fine.

Does anyone have templates or dimensions for necks? At least dimension for standard 24", 24.75" and 25" and 25.5". I have fret chart scales, but not actual neck / fret board dimensions.

I just posted the 50's and 60's strat necks. The Super-Sonic template also has the lefty 24" scale neck.

I emailed the templates to Office Depot, they pulled it up and printed it out for me. First one we tried was the Toronado, it was way off. He adjusted it and it looked great. I put a toronado template that I made from a actual toronado to double check it and it was wrong. I'm assuming those grids on the plans are supposed to be 1" x 1", when I measured it with a ruler I got 1 1/16" x 1 1/16" squares. Double check your squares, if they aren't 1" x 1", chances are it's to big. The guy charged me less then $3 for like 8 pages... I'll let the kids color em and hang em on the wall Laughing
