I figured I would share this to help anyone out who is looking to use their origin to make a guitar. This is a charvel san dimas super strat inspired style guitar, which has a floyd rose bridge, humbucker pickup at the bridge and single coil pickup at the neck. If you find this helpful and would like to throw me a couple bucks you can venmo or PayPal me @craverstamey , I did spend a ton of time refining all these files.

Route Depths: Guitar top: Neck Pocket: 0.625” Single Coil Neck Pickup: 0.625" Humbucker Bridge Pickup: 0.75" Floyd Rose Bridge Routes see attached photo. Note* You will have to finish this route with a router and pattern bit* Guitar Bottom: Control Cavity: Inside Cavity: 1.5” Note* You will have to finish this route with a router and pattern bit* Cover Plate recess: .25” Bridge Plate recess: .25 Bridge Plate inside: See picture Note* You will have to finish this route with a router and pattern bit* Neck: HeadStock area: Most of this area needs to be approx .25” lower than neck top but normally has a slight curve that leads into this area so i would start the curved area by hand. You can bandsaw the headstock recess or route it. Fretboard: Nut Shelf: 0.265” Floyd Rose Locking Nut R3 Fret Dots: 0.04” (Sand Flush after) Fret Slots: They are marked out on this file, however, I cut mine a different way. The file should work if you want to cut these out with origin and the correct size router bit. Materials: Fret Dots https://www.stewmac.com/Materials_and_Supplies/Inlay_and_Pearl/Pre-cut_Inlays/Black_Plastic_Dots.html Floyd Rose Original with R3 Locking Nut https://www.musiciansfriend.com/accessories/floyd-rose-original-series-tremolo-bridge-with-r3-nut?rNtt=floyd%20rose%20original%20r3&index=1 Tuner machine Heads: Schaller/Sperzel size 25/64” (9.92mm) Standard Humbucker size & strat single coil size pickups If you find this helpful and would like to throw me a couple bucks you can venmo or PayPal me @craverstamey , I did spend a ton of time refining all these files, and trying to make this as user friendly as possible. Enjoy! I chose to do a fiddleback veneer top after contouring the carved areas, which add complication but is unnecessary. The carving I prefer to do with a kutzall disc on an angle grinder. I will post more pictures as I finish mine.
