Greetings Nation,

Does anyone know where I can get a fat back neck template? Most internet searches come up with ones that are no longer listed for sale. Thanks in advance!

Are you referring to the vintage Fender Deep U / Warmoth Fatback style neck? You’re looking for a Neck Carving Template right? Here’s one for a Fender 52’ U style on Etsy:

Yes, thank you!

Nice link, Brian.

That ad offers a number of neck carves including '59 C & Large C.   Choices are:

PURCHASE INCLUDES:
• (1) 1st Fret Template
• (1) 12th Fret Template

GUITAR TEMPLATE SPECS:
Modern C - 1st Fret = .820" / 12th Fret = .870"
Large C - 1st Fret = .875" / 12th Fret = .950"
'59 C - 1st Fret = .790" / 12th Fret = .970"
'65 C - 1st Fret = .820" / 12th Fret = .974"
Modern V - 1st Fret = .850" / 12th Fret = .890"
'57 Soft V - 1st Fret = .850" / 12th Fret = .990"
'52 U - 1st Fret = .990" / 12th Fret = .990"

BASS TEMPLATE SPECS:
'75 Jazz Bass - 1st Fret - .820" / 12th Fret = .970"

Sweet!

"Large C - 1st Fret = .875" / 12th Fret = .950"
'59 C - 1st Fret = .790" / 12th Fret = .970""

Those two really bother me. The 59 C is certainly not correct,  Should be more like .870-.890 on average. The large C, as in 1958 Les Paul generally would be larger that the .875 listed.  The 1960 Les Paul definitely was slimmer.

I find that the C-D shape or the amount of shoulder the neck has, makes just as much difference, or more, than the thickness.

More neck measurements from various guitars.
