Any Stingray4 players own Callipers?

    This seemed like the best place for this, if not I'm happy to move it.

    Looking to get a custom case made for my Stingray4, but before I can get a quote I need to fill out a thorough dimensions sheet.
    I don't think I have the proper tools and am also lazy :)

    I'd be happy to compensate someone say $15 for the job.

    Let me know,
    Chris O.

    Hi.

    Weirder how?

    Just allow a 1/2" to an inch clearance on all sides for the padding, and You'll be golden.

    The case company, or the foam company that'll cut the foam, will have the outline on file.

    IIRC the Stingray has a straight headstock, so no angling problems there either.

    Regards
    Sam

    Boy, are you a pain in the ***:D:p

    Okay, this is based on my Classic Stingray 4, using a tape measure...with as good a measurement as I could get. Neck size is probably a hint narrower from side to side, but you may be able to get neck sizes from the EBMM website or a retailer specs:

    In no particular order (in inches of course):
    K- 1 1/4
    L- 1 3/8
    M- 2 1/4
    V- 10 1/8
    E- 4
    S- 1 3/4
    T- 2 1/4
    W- 9 1/2
    C- 10 7/8
    D- 13 1/2
    H- 19 1/2
    B- 44 3/4

    it's a company called Cedar Creek Cases: http://cedarcreekcases.com/
    I've always wanted a slim "acoustic guitar" style case for my bass~
    They said they can make them any size necessary~

    Good times! (I'll post in this thread whenever it happens!)
