Ibanez Lo-Pro 7 Bridge Template Drawings - Click here

I am wrapping up some CAD drawings for a custom 7 string guitar I am building. I am using the Lo-Pro 7 Tremolo and figured since there's such a shortage of drawings/templates, etc... for this tremolo, I'd post my drawings publicly.

I am still finalizing my measurements and the actual pocket dimensions and will post the DXFs after I have made an actual rout and checked it thoroughly. BTW, the rout I am doing is completely from scratch and in no way a copy of an actual Ibanez rout, but will feature some improvements at the cost of a little extra work in the routing procedure. I am also contemplating selling the template sets for those without access to CNC machinery to make them.

This marker is to avoid folks from attempting the drawings themselves or paying someone $$$ to get a template made. Patience and I'll have the drawings up in under 2 weeks.

Here's the partially finished drawing (still have rear rout to finish, apply dimensioning, and do a test run on some wood!)

Well, it's almost near completion... the wood for the top billet is almost finished in the dry cycle so I've made some confirmations and tested a few things. Here 's what I have sofar. I will make a final revision (if necessary) after the guitar is built if I find any tweaks that can be made.

dft of bridge layout (use with SolidEdge 2D):

I will post again when the guitar layout and bridge is finalized (still have to test my back pocket rout since I've retained much more wood than most trem-equipped guitars leave here. I may also be able to keep more intact.)

If you would like to make your own patterns and don't have AutoCAD, download "Solid Edge 2D." It is free and what I used for these designs. It really works great! If using SE2D, use the .dft To save the dxf/dft file, rightclick - save as. The image files are compressed jpegs (pretty much here just for quick ref) and I haven't checked scaling so don't use these as templates! And a final warning... double check everything for yourself!

Thanx,
