View Full Version : Template of Raw Headstock?

26-05-2017, 01:55 PM
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?

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.

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 :)

The blank head stock printed great. Thanks again Grant :)

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

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

It's not quite the same as the Voldemort head stock, and some of these are practically unshaped rectangular paddles with holes. Besides, some of the ones I'm talking about would go with the the Gretsch style kits - which is none of you-know-who's business ;)

Andy, if you are wanting something in particular, shoot me a PM and I can sort you out.

Just to be clear, I'm not chasing templates for a range of naughty designs, I'm after a scale template of the ES-5V head stock so I can come up with my own designs while I await it's arrival.

Failing that, I don't suppose someone who has already purchased an ES-5V and hasn't messed with the original head stock would mind taking a few measurements and posting its dimensions up here?
