Humbucker Pickup Routing Template

About This Item

Transparent acrylic templates to rout for Gibson humbucking pickup.

Laser-cut for precise edges: Our routing templates are laser-cut for smooth edged precision, and centerlines are laser-etched when needed for correct placement.

Our 3/16" (4.76mm) transparent acrylic templates ensure proper router placement on a guitar body or pickguard, eliminate guesswork and produce cleaner results. They can be positioned with countersunk screws or double-stick tape.

Carbide-tipped Ball-bearing Router Bits are preferred for use with our templates.

These single-coil templates are also included in our Pickup/Control Cavity Routing Template Set which has ALL of our Gibson and Fender pickup routing shapes plus control cavities.

Easy as pie!

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I've never used a router or template of any kind in my life. Aligning the template was easy. I was just cleaning out what appeared to be a free-hand route on a MIM tele for the bridge. Worked perfectly to provide a clean finished look and feel.

Didn't work for me

The template was too thin and my router bit tore up the edges. I'm a novice at guitar building, and using a router. Perhaps someone knows how to use the template better than me. If there is a better technique, I wish the template came with instructions. Otherwise, I wish the template was made in half inch MDF. Also, the dimension may be too wide for some pick up rings. I'm starting over with my own handmade template.

Nice template

By

This template is the perfect size for a humbucker pickup. The only thing I wish, is that it were thicker, at least a quarter inch thick would be nice. Three eighths inch thick would be great. I bought two to tape together.

they need to be the same size as the pickup rings you sell

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I have used these many times, but have noticed that the mounting rings do not cover the cut out nor do the holes line up when you try to install the rings. Meaning filling in holes and re drilling them out correctly. .....not good. These holes should line up. Plus the outer edge of the ring should cover all of the cavity but it leaves a crack at the edges, so I am constantly adding boxing tape to "shrink" the cavity template. In other words compare the templates you sell to the rings you sell. There lies your problem.

Too big

By
(Customer's Reviews)


This pickguard template is too big for every humbucker I own. You will have to wind a lot of tape around the edge and make a new template to make it snug. Otherwise the template is constructed professionally. Also note the router bits stew mac sells will not be small enough for the radius in the corners. You might as well just glue square pieces of wood around a pickup cover.

too wide

I'd give them a higher rating because they do exactly what they say they will do, however the cavity they cut is too wide and standard sized humbucker rings dont quite cover the cavity.

Humbucker pickguard template may be oversized

By
(Customer's Reviews)


My templates were purchased several years ago but I see others have the same issue: the humbucker body cavity template is fine, but the pickguard template is oversized for a Gibson-style covered humbucker. Image shows my template against a commercial pickguard with a perfectly-sized (1.5" x 2.75") cutout. Stew-Mac should publish the dimensions.

Nice but not thick enough

By
(Customer's Reviews)


These are nice but they are really only good for making your own templates from. Maybe that is their intended use. The mini humbucker does not fit the Golden Age P90.
