Les Paul Neck Blueprints

Recommended Posts


I'm building my first guitar and chose a Les Paul. I'm good to go on the body, but don't have any details on the neck.

Any chance someone out there has any blueprints or anything that could help me?

searches often do that, you just have to mess with all the settings and try about 5 times to weild any anwsers.

Im not complaining, but it does get fusterating.

guitarbuild.com has full blues for a les paul i think.
