    I just picked up some new guitar drawings which I had printed at 1:1. Originals came from the net for free! ( I now have the Billy Bo, a 50's Jet, a Corvette, and Brian May's Red Special on paper in black and white. I've been wanting to try the Billy Bo build so making the templates comes next.

    I've been thinking about doing this myself, or at least making the body myself and using an F- style neck, probably a lefty Strat neck for that Firebird reverse headstock look. I saw some nice looking templates on ebay, one full- size and one a little more compact shorty version. Looking forward to the build thread!:)

    Nice. That should be a fun build.

    Your picture made me think of a scaled down print for some reason. A framed one would make a cool addition to a music room.

    Haven't really thought through this one yet but I'm looking forward to building the elevated neck (i.e. with the neck extension over the body). That will be a new challenge.

    When I rolled out the drawings, framing them was the first thing I thought as well.
