Peavey T60 plans

Hi there,

Looking to see if anyone knows where I can get a drawing of T60 body for a guitar project I am planning.
Would be happy with a tracing of the body and note of depth so I can make a template
Strange request but hopefully someone can help.
Thanks Gary

While learning flamenco guitar in Spain he had spent many hours in guitar makers workshops and had absorbed the techniques involved due to his photographic memory - well enough to build his own instruments by memory alone. He established his first workshop on Carmine Street in New York's Greenwich Village. On his return to England he set up a workshop near Oxford, later relocating it to Cambridge. He widened his range of instruments to lutes, harpsichords, theorbos, vihuelas, citterns, and panduras. By 1979 his focus was on making violins, violas and cellos. He died in 2000 in Cambridge, aged 66.
