These 3D Files were constructed from our popular L5 CES Single Cutaway files and 2D CNC files that we have in the plan section of our site. You will find that these files will provide a top level of convenience to customers who possess a CNC router, or access to CNC routing services.
We offer our L5 plans either as a complete set or individual pieces (5) pieces total. if you don’t need the entire guitar. For instance if you only wish to carve the top and back plates you can purchase the files to do that.
Unsure if these files will work on your CNC system? Download our free Gibson Mustache Bridge 3D CNC files to be sure. Download HERE.
All these 3D CNC files are formatted in STEP format (Standard for the Exchange of Product Data). Most 3D CNC controller software should handle this popular formatting. STL format for all files is also included.
The available files are detailed below:
L5 CES SingleCut Top-Back:
This file consists of (4) separate files.
1. A 3D contoured mech of the top plate, including the arching of the underside of the top. This file does not have any cutouts of f holes or pickup holes..
2. This file is similar to the file above, plus it includes only the f-hole cut-outs and neck relief cutout. This will benefit customers who wish to make an L5 without any electronics, including pickups, control knobs etc.
