Is that the template for your guitar that your building
Yeah, it is.
cause if so, you don't want to have the neck bit on it as to have a chance to get the neck pocket right
I tried explaining this to my dad, when i first drew the stencil i only did the body and thats it. Then he came out, screaming at me etc, telling me to do the whole thing.
as Strats have a bolt-on neck construction. Unless you are making a set neck or neck through, which take real practice and precision and I wouldn't recommend making unless you are building a serious piece of guitar.
Nope, it's going to be bolt on just like the Strat.
The actual body templates for Strats linger at guitar making sites all over the net, I recommend looking at them.
I have looked for guitar templates, but that requires getting em sent down from wherever they are, taking time and money...
I don't think i went to bad using the jigsaw anyway, it come out ok. Im going to try again to explain to my dad why i didn't need to add the neck and only needed the body.
