Hi, this is a very nice project. RESPECT.
So I decided, to do one by myself , as I really like the shape of an RD.

Does anybody have a 1:1 drawing of the RD-body ?
Best as CAD or PDF file, incl. dimensions ?
Or at least has some information, where to get a drawing?
Not easy to find ... :unsure:

Thx in advance.

Hi, thanks for the compliment. I haven't been on here for years. I don't have an accurate drawing, I just traced some photos I found online. I had a 1977 RD custom for a bit a couple of years ago but I traded it towards something else...

I actually got this guitar out the other day and will try to get it finished this summer, only 7 years late...
