Hi thanks!
But I'll not be bad if this dont stop.
I can continue helping who take to do more guitars.
I would like make more videos, more tutorials and many more guitars models I already had started.
I´ll be happy if somebody take and go with this job. So I think in a partnership for a time to help and a very good price.
I sell between 2 to 4 files per week without make any publicity and I don´t know speak or write English well. This job in hands of who have time and feeling of enterprising, will take this and make more sales and more money because my files of guitars is doubtless the best material of guitar for cnc in web. Some are good, but are made for enginieer and not luthier or luthier with little experience on machine. Very websites with plans for selling have wrong measures and other with free dxf files, well .. are free and no have commitment.

That would actually be a copy of the Jackson Kelly, not the Explorer. 8)

Inspired me this image. A few aspects are not exactly equal the originals.
I call Explorer because if you say Explorer Jackson the people remember better that model is. Kelly is more easy to associate or some times I say Marty Friedman Jackson!

If you say "Explorer" to a Jackson fan, and they think "Kelly" body, then they are not Jackson people. Reason being is that Jackson actually used to legally be able to make Explorers in the past. :wink:

I got a plan vector with 24 3/4 with 22 frets and want to do the 24 frets, but I have a doubt. As you know Jackson look if you can help me with this....
I saw about the current sizes is 25 and 25 1/5 inch scale length.
The two questions are:
1 - What these is most common length?
2 - Body size changes or remains the same?

Thanks..

Not sure I've ever seen a 25" scale Kelly, quite honestly, unless it would be a Custom Shop. Same as the 24.750" scale, never saw a Kelly with one.

I've only seen a 25.5 scale, where did you see a 25" scale Kelly?

I know they made a few "Fusion" (24.750" scale) models over production in the Dinky bodies.

Body sizes in the Kelly were few, but did happen as they had to actually size it down for Marty (he's very small). I believe in the very beginning of making these they were made for Brad Kelly of "Heaven", (hence the name) and were larger with some sharp little cutouts on the sides. These made again but I can't remember dates.

P.S. Don't forget to send me the percentage of your sales when you sell these :wink:

I read on some sites luthier some information. Deferens measures of different years of manufacture and version series.
The changes ranged from the scale length, radius of 12" and composed of 12" to 16 ", but everyone, always with 24 frets. We downloaded plans freely on the internet with 24 3/4 scale radius of 12" and 22 frets.

I have some friends who have good guitars and I can ask them to let me see their guitars.
Not far from me, lives a friend and he has between his guitars a Custom Solist and also a Kelly, but I remember that his Kelly is a simple XSeries I guess
Another friend has a custom throughneck Rhrand Rose and I will also take measurements and find a standard between these guitars.
Inside the site of Jackson not find important information like this. In the Fender site for example, there is enough information.

Make perfect copies with guitars give enough work and the sale value I practice would be insufficient to pay my hourly rate. My site guitar is more a push for the beginners to guitar making with CNC than something highly professional.
My values ​​are between $ 50 and I spent more than that to make a leisurely afternoon with my family. A person can use this file to make a guitar and make more money and learn what you need with little money.
I have this site for their own taste. I have another job that I very time consuming.

I'm evaluating how to make my site with a group of collaborators.
I think the digital guitar maker can take 70% and I get 30% of the sale of a file. I have some work on 3dmodel club and I get 50% of sales. It would work like this. But they must be people who can actually do in digital form and the machine to know what's available.

But as always my time is short and I'm doing a full video of how I do the guitars in Rhinoceros and then do them in Cut3D and Cut2D/VCarve. The video shows how I do the guitars from my site end the edition is giving me a headache
So after that it is possible that my site will come into extinction. :roll:
