Help! Need Scan, Pic, or Template of IBZ 12-String Headstock

I'm hoping someone out there can help me. If you've got an Ibanez 12-string electric, could you possibly take a picture of the headstock WITH A SCALE (ruler or whatever) along the straight edge of the headstock? I'm trying to make a template for a 12-string neck, and need the template for the shape of the headstock and the location of the tuner holes. The picture would need to be taken as close to perpendicular above the surface of the headstock as possible, with the scale at the same level as the surface of the headstock.

An alternative would be to take the headstock (with the tuners and hardware removed) and lay it flat on a scanner with a ruler on the glass next to it and just scan it. Actually, that would be ideal, but I hate to ask anyone to strip a neck just for my project (but I WOULD be very grateful!). OR, you could trace the headstock, scan the tracing, and send that. Can you tell I'm desperate?

If you can help me out, please PM or e-mail me.

Thanks,
Andy

Here are a couple of pics of of the 12-string neck from my S540TN-RR. The one with the tape measure didn't turn out great, but I can tell you that the headstock is exactly the same size as my JEM7PBK (pictured) as well as the other Ibanez' I've got. The only real difference is the lack of a locking nut and the spacing of the tuners. They're definitely a tight fit!

I think that the RT452 headstock might have been slightly longer, but I no longer have one and can't find any pics of the headstock.






Hope it helps!
Chris

That's PERFECT! Thanks for the pics.

When you say "exactly the same size," do you mean the length of the headstock is the same? The 12 string headstock has to be a slightly different shape to accomodate the appropriate string spacing. Whereas on the 6-string version, the tuners along the straight edge go from the low E to the High E, on the 12-string, the tuners along the straight edge only go from the low E to the D. It looks like a shallower angle from the centerline of the neck. That's the biggest problem I was having creating the shape was getting the angle correct.

Anyway, the pics are great. I owe ya one.

Hey Andy- I did mean that the headstocks are the same length. The 12-string is certainly a slightly different shape as you said.

Next question, if you don't mind - What's the width of the neck at the nut, 12th fret, and 24th fret?
