Anyone know an accurate size for the Wolf body? It seems longer and thinner than a strat. Looking for body dimensions. Thanks!

Take this photo and email it to kinkos. Tell em to print it out with the humbuckers scaled to their correct dimensions, then cut it out. Or, tell em to print on a transparency, slap that baby on an overhead projector, move the projector towards the wall till the humbuckers are the right size, and trace it.

Id show you the photos if i knew how to post em.... wait let me take 5 seconds to read how to do it...

ok here are some photos...

here is some i drew in autocad

According to:

neck width at 24th fret was 2.25", so that might help as a frame of reference. It also gives overall dimensions as:

L: 40.875"
W: 12.375"

"Peanut" guitars.... ;-)

Or similar to the above technique, take this image from waldo and use the joint in Jerry's hand as a scale of reference.
Then use the joint as a reference to measure wolf. So say Wolf is 10 joints long, roll one, measure and there you go!

Just kidding, I love you guys and this board, looking forward to Furthur at MSG (have tickets for SUN, looking for extras for Sat) Fred

Not all joints were made the same :wink: but you COULD use the case of Heiniken...

The top case is able to be balanced off center because Phil had already grabbed three!

I love the Champ Amp and cool dye grill cover. Looks like a Courtenay Pollock (no.. not the mad dripper, Jackson (for those who were not too baked in their art history class)).
