i know some of the demensions i am building my own design based off a prs, but i am making some improvements like a offset body so you dont rub your arm raw on the top of the guitar if you play hard.

then scale is 25"

for 22 fret the fret board is 18 5/16" long

thickness at the thickest piont is 2 1/8" at the bridge

edges are 1 7/16"

body width is 12 7/8"

let me know what else you need and maybe i can get it for you.

but its alot easier with one in front of you if you have any freinds that have one just take it and trace the body out on to a peice of paper and then take all your measurements. good luck!

You need AutoCad or any other CAD program to view and modify it. AutoCad is very very expensive :D

There are a couple of sites where you can download it from, but that's illegal B)

You could also use Voloview to view the file.

See ya :D

Another questions:

The drawing is scaled 1:1 in millimetres, so when you plot it in mm it should be 100% scaled.

I should use mahogany with maple yes!

Neck also mahogany!

The neckscale is 25"

Headstock angle is 8 degrees (I think)
