Anyone have jem neck dimensional plans?

I am going to build a guitar similar (but different) to a jem. I want to go over the top with inlays, woods (maybe a quilt jem???) ect.

I dont own a Jem so I cant measure and draft blueprints myself.

Does anyone have it laid out and willing to share? I will keep it confidential if asked.

Looking for AANJ

thanks!

Re: So I made some blueprints...
Ok, well here is the PDF. If there are any crucially incorrect dimensions, someone please let me know and I will fix them asap.

And here is a preview of the SolidWorks model that the blueprints are directly made from :

One thing to note is that the curved AANJ back contour appearing on real Ibanez Jems will have to be done by hand and does not appear in the blueprint. I simply tapered it in order to save myself some serious surfacing headaches. Also, I used a compound radius for the fingerboard...which I'm almost certain is incorrect...but nothing's saying you have to use it lol I just did so for when I finally get to make one of these for myself because I like the feel of a compound radius.

Another is that some of the dimensions will very likely be slightly off. I have no real readily available reference other than the already-available blueprints.

Please don't steal these. I worked hard on them. I know someone inevitably will, but still...would love to not see my work up for sale on eBay when I'm giving it out for free lol

Re: Anyone have jem neck dimensional plans?

NOTE:

After reviewing the blues I believe the side neck detail at KK is incorrect.

I believe the depth of the truss routing to be correct @ 11.113mm but feel this should of been measured from the top of the fret board and NOT the top the fretboard mating surface. (*just a guess on why)

-It looks like the distance from the base of the truss routing to the back of the neck is grossly too close.


Can anyone please tell me if this observation is correct?
