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.

Didn't work for me

(Customer's Reviews)

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

(Customer's Reviews)

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

(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.
