These guitar plans are based on a popular thinline hollowbody guitar that was made popular in the 1950's. These guitars we first introduced on the scene in 1959 and in the first few years of production, the model saw many different variations.

May guitarists appreciate the warm tones that are produced by the original of this thinline guitar and we have reproduced the plans so you can make your own model of one of these prized guitars.

As soon as you complete your plan purchase with us, you will automatically be given a download link to access your plans. Learn why we sell our plans in an electronic version.

These electronic guitar plans are very detailed filled with details, sections, notation and dimensions to guide you on your way.

If you are looking for electric guitar plans that are similar to a specific make or model of electric guitar, please contact us and we'll point you in the right direction.

This guitar exhibits all the classic characteristics of this fabulous guitar. This version of this guitar features a body without a cutaway. We also have the single cutaway version plan of this guitar available. If you would prefer that, please click HERE.
