Guitar plans/blueprints

Recommended Posts

Is it just me or do the plans on paper always look smaller than the actual guitar.

Even on one to one scale...(life size)

Im planing to make an SG and I made the plans on cartboard to life size so I can plan ahead before cutting any wood.Altho on ruler it all seems ok when I look at it it seems a bit smaller than actual. Im begining to question my scale calculations and I wont be suprized if Im wrong...I used the printout from the gibson site...I measured from the nut till the 12th fret and formed a scale upon which I made the body plans.

If anyone has real values of size of an sg please help me out.

(btw hello this is my firt post here :D )

I used all known measurments I could take. I always ended up on the same scale lenght so I was correct...I couldnt have made the same mistake 5 times.. Now im not so sure for the other plan I used at the xerox machine to magnify it to actual size. I tell you when I use the ruler its ok but when I stare at it is seems small.

Can you help me by telling me some SG body lenghts that are a fact? you see I cant use the scale length since its the body that Im treating and not the neck.
