    I'm currently at a school for cabinetmaking. our teacher keeps the shop open so we can work on projects of our own if we want. i've decided i'd like to do a guitar but I'm lacking some measurements. So if you guys could help me out that'd be awesome.

    What I'd like to do is have a neck pretty much like an SG Classic. So if anyone could provide neck measurements, thickness, width, and such that'd be awesome. Also if anyone has a drawing of a Gibson headstock or measurements that'd help. I plan to change the head a little so it isn't the open book look but just a bulge at the top. (I plan to play with that a little more but I want the general dimensions to stay about the same)

    Thanks

    Thanks, if you could include the dimensions for the piece of wood required for the neck too that'd be great.
