Hey Dave

The Stewmac plan for a OOO gives for neck with fingerboard (no frets):
1st fret: 7/8"
8th fret: 31/32"

good luck,
Herman

Dave,
Not sure you know this, but I sell neck templates that have all the information you need. I have a 1940 000-28 in stock that has all the measurements you need. You can see them here: http://www.luthiersuppliers.com/products/p10-1.html
I'll look up the thickness for you when I get home and let you know.

Dave,
I have the measurements you need. Directly under the first fret it is .830" and directly under the 10th fret it is .999". Hop that helps. Good luck!

I have one of those neck templates, and it really works for me.

Tracy, any luck chasing down a mid thirties Gibson L-00 style for a template?
