Thread: Template of Raw Headstock?

  1. #1

    Template of Raw Headstock?

    Hi All,

    Just waiting for my Tele kit to arrive and was wondering whether anyone has a trace of the raw headstock such that I can start doodling some designs?

    Cheers,
    James

    Don't know how well this will print, included a ruler for scale. (assuming this is what you were after)

    Grant has it right, Dedman. James was after a template for the as-it-comes kit headstock so that he can start drawing some headstock designs before the kit comes.

    Personally I find the standard Tele headstock design to be just the right match for the body, and find alternative designs very odd looking. I have a non-Fender Tele neck on a home-made mahogany Tele body (home-made by a mate) and the headstock is just that tiny bit too narrow for it to look right.

    Build #2 EX-1 (with alder body) Yet to start. http://www.buildyourownguitar.com.au...093#post123093
    Build #3 Customised ES-1 for an ES-330 style build. On order, expected November.

    Thanks Grant and yeah Simon I think I probably will end up with the normal Tele head but just thought I'd doodle around a little. I certainly wouldn't be going with anything crazy.

    Thanks Dedman too for the Fender templates, I'm sure in the end that will come handy

    How about the 3 per side non-fender shaped ones?

    Not really a good time to ask about those until the dust settles.
