Hey everybody,
So I am going to print out this template today and I want to know where I should go, I was thinking Staples, Kinkos or Officemax. Also, the template says the total body length is 15.9 inches, should I round up to 16 in or would that mess up my layout?
thanks,
Benjamin

Just take it to one of the places you mentioned. Also, take a ruler with you to double check a couple of measurements on the printout to make sure they didn't do any scaling.

With regards to 15.9" vs. 16", I guarantee if you measured 20 different old Teles, you'd get slightly different measurements for the length and width of each one. Don't sweat it. The only dimensions worth being concerned with are neck pocket and scale length.

Also, when you start drilling holes, don't drill the bridge mounting holes or rout for the pickup until you have your bridge in-hand.

The places you mention or any engineer or architect can print it. Get at least three copies - you will end up cutting at least one of them up.

I'm building a tele right now and I'm going to shorten it almost 3/4 inch to avoid some flaws in the wood (100 year old barn wood). As Roger says, the bridge and neck pocket are critical - measure those carefully.

If you print it full size on a 22"x34" sheet it should come out to scale.
If you paid for that plan, posting the .pdf here is probably a violation of your purchase agreement.
I've posted several plans here in .pdf format for free download, but I drew the plans myself.
