I found my drawings of Wolf on tdpri. There were no dimensions but when I used the known scale length as a reference point I was then able to scale the other dimensions from his drawings and they seemed to match up well.

I came up with a nifty way to get extremely close to actual.

I looked at the recent Guitar Aficionado cover because the perspective was very vertical. I scanned the image to a PDF in color. I then looked at the proportional size of a Dimarzio Super II on the magazine cover to the actual size of one in the guitar.

http://www.guitaraficionado.com/how-jerry-garcia-revolutionized-the-custom-guitar-industry-in-his-pursuit-of-excellence.html
Bottom of the article.

BTW...don't buy the mag for $12.00. There's more to learn here than in that piece.

I'll save you a bit of trouble & math. 223%. Grab a snapshot in Acrobat. Enlarge 223%. Reprint.

You have yourself an actual size photo of Tiger. Laminate the photo to poster board. Done.

Peace

I see somebody discovered my drawings that I posted over on the TDPRI.

The power of the internet!

Anyway I hope folks over here have put them to good use.

Has anybody used them??????

I thought I'd bump this thread and ask the same question -
Has anyone here used my drawings for a build?
I'm just curious because I've shared my drawings with everyone
that has requested them on the TDPRI and all I ask for in return
is an update on their projects. But I haven't heard a word from
a single person. So again I ask - has anyone used them?

I was about to print it off and size it up myself. I'll be starting a Wolf Project later this month. Do you still have the full size PDF? It would make it easier for printing.

“Jerry was a traditionalist and a pioneer, embracing America’s musical past while forging into the future. He understood how music can be a way to experience the unknown. This quest became a fountain of positive energy. How often does a lead guitarist play so selflessly with the idea of overshadowing the existence of ego? Every speck of me wishes he was still alive.”

I send you a private message chip. I could use that full size PDF if I could get it. I'm starting up a wolf project here sooner than later. That would be a huge help :)
