Guitar fretboard photoshop inlay

Does anyone have a picture of a fretboard to scale that I can put in photoshop and put my ideas for inlays in to send to a luthier?

Thanks guys!

That's why I want a 1:1 image to send him, he has a CNC machine that can cut based on diagrams. I'm talking about ET guitars.

Sorry, I can't follow! If you're able to put the pic into Photoshop, why can't you just photograph a neck and do it yourself???

I'm not trying to be inpolite (unpolite), but if you're able to use PS, why not doing it yourself??

I mean, come on, taking a pic and scale it....that's basic stuff in PS, isn't it??

This is an honest question, no pun intended. I mean, ok, this is a forum and I help wherever I can but why let others do the work for you?? Seriously!

I'm not personally using photoshop, I have four images I want placed on a transparent fretboard like an image of black and white blueprint type of thing where I'll get my friend to place the images in the proper frets. I'm not asking ANYONE to do the work for me, I'm just simply asking if anyone has the blueprint for me to place my images on it and create a smooth streamlined blueprint for reference for the luthier, I apologize if my asking for help bothered/offended you.
