I have uncovered a spreadsheet that I stumbled upon ages ago when doing some research. As I remember it came from an instruments makers college or something simillar in the UK.

I'm not familliar with the workings of spreadsheets ( never having the need to use them) and this looks pretty useful.

here's a section of it

Neck Join to Top of Sound Hole 3.85 3 27.3 97.8

Neck Join to Center of Sound Hole 5.73 5 23.3 145.5

Nut 100th Inch 32nd MM

Width of Nut 0.16 0 5.0 4.0 4

Neck Edge to Base String of Nut 0.13 0 4.0 3.2 5

Neck Edge to Treble String of Nut 0.13 0 4.0 3.2 6

Neck & Fingerboard 100th Inch 32nd MM

Distance to Body + Nut 14.57 14 18.4 370.2

Width of Neck at Nut 1.88 1 28.2 47.8 7

Width of Neck at Body 2.13 2 4.0 54.0 8

Angle of Neck Taper 0.49 15.6

Width of Fingerboard at Sound Hole 2.19 2 6.1 55.6

Maximum Width of Fingerboard 2.20 2 6.3 55.8

Maximum Length of Fingerboard 18.63 18 20.0 473.1

Bridge 100th Inch 32nd MM

Compensation 0.16 0 5.0 4.0 9

Scale + Compensation 25.56 25 17.8 649.1

Distance from Neck Join to Saddle 11.14 11 4.4 282.9

Space Between 1st & Last String at Bridge 2.13 2 4.0 54.0 10

Fixed Space Between Each String 0.43 0 13.6 10.8

Computed Spacing at Bridge 2.04 2 1.3 51.8

Computed Space Between Strings 0.41 0 13.1 10.4

Length of Saddle 3.13 3 4.0 79.4 11

Length of Bridge 6.00 6 0.0 152.4 12

Width of Bridge 1.25 1 8.0 31.8 13

Depth of Bridge 0.38 0 12.0 9.5 14

Backset of Neck 100th Inch 32nd MM

Height of Fingerboard (with frets) 0.3125 0 10.0 7.9

everything is a bit wokey because it hasn't cut and pasted well , but as I say it is a spreadsheet and you can put different values in the cells and re calculate If any one knows more about it or would like a copy let me know. It was freely offered from the website and emailed to me, so I'm guessing I can do the same

Looks like it is just a unit converter :D . Measure in inches to the hundredth in decimal form, Same measure in whole inches plus 32nds to the tenth of a 32nd, and same measure in Millimeters.

I suppose that is handy if you are using a dial caliper or digital caliper, a rule with 32nds indicated, and a metric rule.
