If I had my Gibson, I wouldn't be asking this question, but it's getting some setting up done on it, and won't be back for a while.

Could someone measure the width of their 50's or early 60's fretboard at the nut, 4th fret, 5th fret, 12th fret and the 22nd fret?

I wish to make sure I make my fretboard correctly for my build.

Thanks!

Would you mind getting the thickness of the neck from fretboard surface to back of the d shape at the 1st fret and the 15th fret?
