Hey everyone! I'm new here! Well I decided as a project for the summer I'm going to start to build a guitar. I decided (For simplicity's sake and cost.) that I'd start with an acoustic. I found a nice and cheap kit (Which is just what I want so I am able to make some screw ups.). This guitar is gonna be a fun project and mainly cosmetic. Something nice to hang up in my room. It's going to be themed and in tribute to my favorite band, Aerosmith! (Who i saw 2 weeks ago w/ ZZ Top!) Well this looks great, I've done research, I know what tools I need ect; It's just I want the headstock to be a Gibson style one. I'm planning on just trimming the neck that the kit comes with. Now I HAVE used the search bar and I checked Google but just can't find plans or a template for a gibson style headstock. I was wondering if anyone has a template they could post? I could tape it on and trim it. Or maybe if someone w/ a guitar that has that style could draw up a template? If anyone could post one it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks! (Also any starting advice is welcome!

I pm'd you, btw.

The template I sent you, I believe you have to use 200% scaling or something like that, Search for the thread called "Ultimate templates thread" and it has the instructions in it.

Anybody miss this bit?

Just for your information Sir, an Acoustic build...kit or no kit, is harder than a solid body electric, by quite some way.

Most guitar builders start with a solid electric and work their way up to an acoustic, not the other way around.

Not that there is anything wrong with what you are doing, I applaud it and look forward to seeing the project develop, so lot's of pics on here please dude

I didn't, I just chose not to reply. I was toying with the idea of embarrasing him... But I was in sortof a good mood. The mood that you just bought 90 ucks worth of stuff for your new pedal, but you realize you got the wrong thing, and realized you only needed 2 switches, all costing less than the 3 you bought already. Good feeling.
