Thumbs up Re: Building an js 1000 from scratch

www.guitarbuildingtemplates.com try this website for the templates. beware they may not be exactly the same as a real js guitar. i have a js100 and a js2000 and these templates are real close but some of the measurements are just a little off. the shape is good though. i just made my own templates from the ones i bought and i made some slight adjustments. its been a while since i started the project and i haven't finished or worked on it for a long time now. best thing to do is to get a body or whole guitar from an auction site and use it as a guide. it doesn't have to be in good condition as long as it is in one piece.

you can get a lot of parts from e-bay if you look long enough you can find what you need. rich has everything you need though and he is smarter than any of those other guys. stewac.com has a lot of parts and luthier supplies

good luck
