My Latest Electric Guitar Build Part 1

I started this build by printing out the pages for the body and neck on my desktop inkjet printer.

After cutting out the printed parts, I traced them onto a sheet of 12mm Birch plywood, which will be used to make reusable templates.

Next, I rough cut the shapes with a jigsaw. For each guitar I build, I make a template for the neck, the body, the control cavity, the control cavity cover and the neck pocket.

After rough cutting the templates, I take them over to my band saw to trim them to the outside edge of the lines I traced from the printed cutouts.
