Dave I Posted April 23, 2008 Report Share Posted April 23, 2008 I am curious if there is a good place to find either plans or buy a template for a Jackson King V. I would like to make an all-mahogany set-neck variation of the King V design. I dunno, I think it just looks a little cooler and maybe a bit less-utilized than the RR-V. Besides, I want to have a four-knob setup so the King V might be a bit more spacious for that design. Anyway, I can't find a set of plans or any place that sells King V templates. Anybody have any advice? As an aside, if I get plans (PDF, CAD, or what have you) but can't get them full-sized, is there any tried-and-true method for blowing them up, like with a projector and then drawing it out on paper? This sounds asinine, however unless I could give the exact dimensions for blowing up a drawing (i.e. print it out on size A"XB" paper, not make it match the scale given or make the length of the strings on the drawing a 24.75/25/25.5/etc." scale), the cashier at Kinkos was clueless, so I am wondering if I go old-school and somehow project the picture, or just use a ruler and rough measurements, I will be close enough. My other option is to get plans/templates for a RR V and cut the top half out, then flip the template over for the next side. Is there any reason that would(n't) work better/worse than some other plan? This might also be nice if I ever plan to make a RR-style offset-V in the future.
