Lightbulb Requesting Strat headstock help!

alright. Im building a Strat right now and the headstock is one of those paddle ones where you can cut it to your liking. anyway. I want it to be a standard strat headstock not the 70's oversized one. here is an example if you dont know what i need it to look like


anyway. I figured I would cut the shape with a band saw. but i need the shape :[ and though I could free hand it. i want it to look right. so I figured I could find someone on here willing to measure from the bottom tip where the F of fender is, that horn like part, straight up to the top of the headstock. then i'll find a straight on picture of a headstock and scale it up to that length so I have the right size. then trace it on the paddle headstock.

sorry if thats confusing. hard to word it right! ant questions just ask:]

Thanks!

Re: Requesting Strat headstock help!

Why not just stop by the local guitar store, and trace an actual headstock?

What a polite world we live in. One man gives another man 5 3/8's and the other one thanks him for it.
