I would like to look into building a TB500 late model clone. Getting ready to be laid off and going to have a lot of spare time on my hands....

SO I'm tirelessly looking for some build specs wit no luck. I've found a lot of threats of people talking about their clones with pics, but no word on how they got their information.

If someone could be so kind as to post some links to TB500 build specs, neck dimensions, body tracings, pretty much anything that would be usefull.

Thanks alot, cheers

Seeing all the TB clones around and no one has dimensions for machining a neck?

Well does anyone know the scale length of a TB500 then? From pictures i can see that they have 22 frets, so is it similar to a Gibson 24-3/4" scale?

If i know that i guess i can make measurements myself, still would be cool is someone could point me in a direction to some dimensions as i can not find them, still... :(

Thanks, I found that one somewhere before but it will def come in handy. just need to figure out how to print illustrator files full size.

Still haven't found any neck drawings, but i know it's a 24.75" scale and i think i'm gonna do my best to copy from pictures and use vintage les paul neck dimensions, as they used the same scale. My guess it the TB500 is close to a pre '59 les paul jr set up.
