I have 3 students building guitars. One has designed his own way out body shape and the other 2 wanted explorers.

With the helpful folk on this forum who gave me a couple of key measurements I scaled all the measurements of a large picture I found and drew up a template on cardboard on my drawing board, which the boys were happy with.

Warmouth do explorer bodies as well and I noted they had exstended the neck pocket outwards instead of having the long tenon that Gibson uses to support the neck. They also make theirs to fit the Strat neck as well.

I have done the same thing with the neck pocket with my design.

They all wanted Mahogany so I picked up the wood today and machined and cut it in our school wood shop so it is all ready for gluing now. Those Explorers will be fairly heavy beasts when finished, no doubt about that
