Wish I had one a long time ago!

(Customer's Reviews)

After struggling to execute decent looking routes with a Dremel, I finally bit the bullet and bought a proper router. I think I may have actually cried tears of joy the first time I used it. If you're going to cut routes in a guitar body, have a proper router. This one works great for me.


Best small router I've ever used

I've been using these guys since high school. They're awesome! Strong enough to stand up to about any species of wood, light enough to safely manipulate for binding work and other tricky routing jobs like that, and they don't vibrate like crazy like a lot of other palm routers do. I've had mine for 5 years now and its still running great.


STEW MAC should have been selling a router like this YEARS ago.

As a guitar builder using a router, the key is "SMOOTH CONTROL." I have been using this router and the Bosch Laminate Trimmer since they came out. 5 Stars! All other routers are too large and too powerful. This router is just right for Electric and Acoustic guitars. It's also very versatile. Buy one now, before you chip out another flamed maple top or back with a big router. This is also a very competitive price.
