Does anyone give a Fender Cyclone plan to me? Or does anyone know where I can find it?

What do you mean by a "plan"?

You can get the service diagrams for them here:

Cyclone

Cyclone HH

Cyclone II

Not sure if that's what you were after though.

Well, I mean a scheme, a diagram that I can use to build a guitar; I'm sorry if I didn't express well

Yeah, do you have a scheme of the Fender Cyclone?

This was exactly my link. I don't have more - except a real cyclone. If you need photos of details feel free to ask me...

No need to apologise!

The links I posted should help with wiring etc but hopefully someone else might have a body template if you're going to build from scratch.

What type of Cyclone do you want to build?

Just curious.. Why build one when the squiers are dirt cheap and the fenders are relatively cheap? Either one would make a good starting point instead of wasting money on a scratch build. Unless you were planning to seriously modify the design..

Because the Cyclones (both Fender and Squier) are incredibly rare here in Italy, especially the Squier, and their price is quite high; besides I always wanted to build a guitar and a friend of mine that makes them said that he will gladly help me with the project this summer.

Well, I'd like to build a relatively common Cyclone, the differences may be these:
-pickups: I was thinking of a Seymour Duncan Quarter Pound single coil for the neck and a Duncan JB for the bridge but with push/pull pot;
-neck: I'd like to have a thin neck like my Squier Duo Sonic (even if my Squier Mustang neck is also comfortable, it is a little bit chunky) with a high gloss finish like the Squier necks; I haven't chosen yet between a maple or a rosewood fretboard;
-bridge: 2-point synchronized tremolo bridge;
I was thinking of a mint green pickguard, not sure if a ocean torquise/lake placid blue or a forest green transparent (the finish on the Thurston Moore Jazzmaster) finish for the body.
Are there any differences between the Cyclone and the Duo Sonic body shape? Is the Cyclone body bigger than the Duos?

Cyclones are fat and heavy and they have strat trems. That's why I'm not a huge fan.

There ARE differences between the cyclone and the cv duo sonic bodyshape. The cyclone's body is thicker - to get load with a strat tremoloblock. And the cyclone's body is offset waist (like a mustang). Have a look on this shematic. It's musicmaster vs. mustang (as duo sonic vs. cyclone).


You may see the differences also when you compare your cv duosonic to your vm mustang...

EXACTLY!!!

I'm not too much of a fan of the Cyclone I but the Cyclone II on the other hand ... Love it . Both however great guitars . I just like the Jag pickups .
A heavy guitar has its qualities in tone and sustain . I'd never turn away from a heavy guitar . The only people I've heard complain about a heavy guitar are old people and skinny emo kids with tight jeans and twig arms . Laughing
