Re: Guitar bodies

You can take that to Kinkos and have them print out at full size. Why not just strap a pen to the machine and have it draw it out? that, or, i own two 24" wide plotters as well... :D Bill, I'm going to take that and run with it, at least check it out... can't do much until the gets a little better....

I was thinking to mill out a scaled up version of the arrowhead at a depth equal to the thickness of a piece of acrylic - this would cover the arrowhead and keep it in place. Any other ideas? i think that if you increase the size of the pocket by half the width of a 45 degree v bit and perform a po...
