Here's an impressive full-scale 4-drawing set of specifications for a 1957 Gibson® J-45® acoustic flattop guitar, drawn by luthier Michael Collins.

Details include a fret scale chart, complete bracing profiles and neck joint dimensions, plus materials specifications. Build your own guitar, or display these handsome drawings on your shop wall.

Measurements were taken directly from a 1957 model, but bonus drawings are included that reflect production variations during the '40s and '50s: large and small pickguard profiles, peghead logos, 3-ring and 7-ring soundhole purflings, neck laminations, and three different bridge styles.

18" x 42" size, supplied rolled.

Helpful but would like more details

The plans are excellent when making bracing and body parts. I would have liked to see a bit more detail on the neck/headstock design and construction. No mention of any veneers used(if any were), Tuner size, truss configuration etc. in these plans. Maybe a separate page of just neck schematics to use as a template. The plans were a big help but I had to create my own templates from what is there and some google work.

Well drawn plans, but...

Good set of plans with great detail.

The only item missing is the shape of the sides prior to bending - included in the Dreadnought and OOO kit plans - you can guess using the dimensions given, but would be really useful to have this to enable tracing directly onto the wood.

Well Done

This is a full scale drawing of a 1957 J45,on 4 large sheets, with variations that Gibson used in the 40's and 50's, such as bridge and pickguard variations. Individual braces are drawn as well as shown in the drawing of the top and bottom. Every detail is well done. I have only started the on the neck, but look forward to building this insturment. The drawings are so good I may frame them when I am done building.
