Could any of you people that own the alexi custom send me the dimensions of the pink/yellow area on the body?

I'm in the process of making a project guitar into an alexi custom, and need these measurements.

Or if someone could magically use a computer to give me the life size dimensions?

This is the look that i'll be going for.




Thanks in advance!

You could try:

1. Google
2. Measuring on a picture and scaling them proportionally
3. Eyeballing it, making it more of your own guitar

1. I've tried google and the search here before making this thread. I'm not some damn 11'er :P
2. I don't know how to do that.
3. i want this to look as close as possible to the Alexi custom as i can, so that won't work.

I'd do #3 personally. If it's a project guitar, I don't think anyone will be mad at you if you don't get it to the micrometer.

For number 2:

-Measure the body of your guitar.
-Measure the body of the picture of the Alexi (Make sure you use the same picture the whole time)
-Divide the Dimensions of your guitar by the dimensions of the one in the picture
-Measure the Pinstripe/Panel thing in the picture
-Multiply the dimensions of the pictured stripes by the number you came up with earlier.

well the stripes are on the edge of a bevel, so if you already have those made on the guitar, than thats 2 of 4 lines already figured, from there i'd keep tweeking it untill it looks the best. they are a paint finish, just for looks and not actually like built in the guitar so theres nothing to really dimesion you know?

Easier way:

The inner lines of the stripe are straight, so measure the angle of the inside of the stripe from the two ends and just draw lines, and when they meet up, that's the third corner.

I'm confused as to what angle you are saying to measure here...

could you please elaborate?

seems simple enough; but how would i do that? print it out and use a protractor?
