Is there a template for a Rickenbacker bass guitar somewhere, or am I just going to have do my best to replicate its shape?

And if i have to eyeball the sonofa***** what would be the best way of going about this, is there a certain technique I should use?

I want to replicate this shape (obviously) headstock and all.



Thanks for help anyone.

get a front view of the thing, and then you're stuck with eyeballing the rest.

Only one i could find:

Try putting it in photoshop or something, enlarging it, tracing over and smoothing the outline, and then repeating until you get what you need.

Eyeball the contours.
