What I have done in the past is used an uncut sheet of 1/8" ABS as my straight edge, if I have to make a long cut. Pine 2x4s usually have too much warp to give you a good straight edge. A piece of finished oak could also be used.

[edit] I forgot to mention that I have found using a box cutter knife works well on ABS sheet. Mark it, get your straight edge and run the box cutter along that line a few times to get a groove started, slowly increasing pressure after the first few times. Once you get most of the way through the ABS, you can stop and literally bend it on the seam and break the piece off clean!
