Hello dear colleagues, I have an idea to order at the luthier a custom made guitar inspired by Gretsch. Why actually, a custom made instrument, and not a Gretsch ? Keyword is "neck". My problem is very big hands: I wear gloves of size 12 . So, first, the scale must be 25,5" - 648 mm, so, the choice of Gretches is small : some versions of Tennys, modern Falcons and Country Gents. Second, the nut width of modern standard neck 1.6875" (42.86 mm) is for my fingers definitely to narrow i.e. not comfortable. Only Country Gent G-6122T-59 has a nut width 1.75" (44.45 mm) mm, just as my current Epi Elitist Gent. And even this 1.75" is for me a bit narrow . Third, all Gretch guitars, actually like almost all modern electric guitars have a quite thin "toothpick" neck profile, and it's not comfortable for me too. And I'm not alone, see this thread http://www.gretsch-talk.com/threads/gretsch-or-rockabilly-guitars-with-larger-necks.174326/ A Strat or a Tele body equipped with custom "fatback neck" by Warmoth ? Nice, but I want a "real" hollow body, not a semi-hollow. Thus, an optimal solution in spite of pretty high price can be a custom made hollowbody guitar with following specs - Body : 16" with depth 2.75" (70 mm) thickness, without central block, so like classic 6120. - Neck : "Fatback" with "deep U" profile, scale 25,5", nut width 1-13/16" (46mm), 22 stainless steel super jumbo frets with zero fret , thickness at 1st fret: 1.00", thickness at 12th fret: 1.00", fretboard radius 14". - Electronics/hardware : 2 x TV Jones Classics (or maybe T-Armonds ??, I'm not decided yet), Bigsby B6, Schaller STM roller bridge on pinned base, locking tuners etc. One experienced luthier from Eastern Europe, which builds mainly the jazz guitars, recommends for my project a solid flamed maple as body material for top, back and sides instead of laminated body of original Gretches. He argues, that the sound of such a body would be similar to the original, and perhaps even better, due to the better resonance of the solid maple top. How to start a project? First of all, I need drawings of 6120 or similar body. I found only a small low-res image on the web : Can anybody help me with the drawings / dimensions of 6120 body ? If you have any usable vector or bitmapped images or CAD files, please PM me, then we can arrange a file-sharing via Google drive or just e-mailing. On the whole, any your comments or ideas regardings this project are highly appreciated. Thanks and kind regards from cloudy Germany.
