Extrude to solid?

I see that Don has created a nice looking solid from the profile.

Being idle, I decided to try this myself.
Probably not the best of ideas!
Using the Simple Extrude tool, the profile, for me, will not produce a solid object, as you can see from the attachments.

I have had no problem with other drawings, as I recall.
Any ideas?

If it's the 2012 Fender American Standard Stratocaster Pickguard 2D Outline Stage 3 drawing, the profile is not closed Tim.
Edit tool and Close fix the problem

I didn't realize there was a tcw file, I just downloaded a picture of the profile and did a new manual trace for extruding.

Don,

    yes, I tried copying around the profile with a spline and this extruded properly.

Torfinn,

    yes, that worked!  :)
