u6crash Posted December 28, 2008 Report Share Posted December 28, 2008 Hey folks, I know I'm still knew here, but I promised I tried to search for an existing thread on this topic and in the tutorials, but I'm just not finding it. I'm still in the tentative stages of planning a build for a Telecasteresque body. I'm really tempted to just buy a body, but there are a few minor things that I want to do different from a standard T-shape. Anyway, I've figured out how to get most of the body from a blank, but what I'm stuck on is drilling the string through holes in the front and making them larger and reaming them so the ferrules are flush with the body. I'm kicking myself because I used to have a book that covered this topic a bit. My concern is the 1/8" bit wandering and not being straight on the way out. Do you measure the location on the holes on the front and back and drill halfway from both sides? If anyone can point me to a reference that discusses this, I would be much appreciative. The alternative is buying a routed/drilled body blank from Warmoth, and I'd much rather save the money by doing it myself. Thanks! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
