Does anyone have or know where I could find a pdf or other useable/printable file of the TB2 / Nick Lucas Inlay Pattern?
I have built one L-00 Gibson sized guitar and hope to build another similar to the Nick Lucas model.

Try here. Scroll down to Nick Lucas.
Thanks, I have seen that. I am hoping for a more simple graphic that will easily print to correct size and can be glued to the pearl for cutting.
If all else fails, I will reprint the photo until I can get a reasonably correct size.
That inlay pattern was widely used on other Gibson instruments, so you might find usable images by searching on line for:
Gibson L7 guitar 1935 (I owned one of these)
Gibson F7 mandolin (Bill Monroe's first "F" shaped mandolin)
Certain years of Gibson's L4 guitar in the mid 30s
The Gibson Nick Lucas guitar of course
There is a line drawing on pintrest. Google gibson inlay patterns. I did not check any further than that.
First Quality Music had a book of patterns and that one is in it. I have the pattern book which I use to cut inlays.
