There are blueprints somewhere in the depths of the projectguitar.com forum, if that helps.

I made one from solid flamed maple on a copy carver, and I wouldn't do it again unless it was on that copy carver. There are too many contours. I could do one free hand, only because the Radius is my favorite guitar and I know it (and the differences between them) like the back of my hand.

Those blueprints are very cool. I'll have to find a use for those.

I just went and saw them. Even if they are no more than wall art, I am definitely glad I have them. Its like finding $10,000 and all the stores are closed. Your mind starts racing and you can't get any satisfaction. I can't figure out what to do with them either but I know it's something.

Frank dude,E-Mail me about the dupli carver (thing),If i can't get a body made,i'll be selling the JS neck :-( I'm impatient and have tons of stuff to get sorted out

Those BluePrints i could work from,but it's just the contours that daze and confuse me a wee tad

I have a duplicarver & can make JS bodies

I just did a Paul Gilbert iceman/destroyer Hybrid, as well as a exact copy of a famous guitar builder's carved top body that is 25 scale...a

If you interested in seeing pictures, let me know

Better yet, if you can post pictures, I will send them to you for all to see

Thanks Darren!

Remember, this is the one I will be using, so I set it up to my specs (tuneamatic bridge, alder body, 2 humbuckers). We are a COST EFFECTIVE custom shop that hand crafts everything, so if you want other options, the sky is the limit for what we can do

We are also toying with a couple of double neck ideas

Let me know what else you would like to see us do

Thanks

CMC

I say just get the tools to make your own bodies, and learn how to do it yourself, that way you can make any body you want and don't have to explain it to someone else. Or spend a lot of money paying someone else.
That's what i started doing......and it's turning out pretty nice
