    Hello, I'm in need of some measurements if there's a friendly TBer out there with a Ripper and a ruler.

    upper bout-
    waist-
    lower bout-
    thickness-
    butt to upper horn-
    butt to heel-
    butt to lower horn-

    Or, if someone has a scale outline they can hook me up with that would be rad.

    TIA

    So far i can only help you with ones i know: thickness is 1 1/2" lower bout is about 14 1/2" and butt to upper horn is 21" i'm building one myself and drew a template based of on tber who had plans on building a g3. I simply changed it to meet ripper specs (with a little twisted touch of mine).

    I have a Ripper I’m putting up for sale, but while I still have it I can try to grab those specs for you. Might take me a little bit to get to it - bump this if you haven’t heard from me in a few days.
