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.

Good, basic template

By PST Guitars from King George, VA

These are good basic templates...a little thin which several folks have already mentioned. I have the entire set and use them regularly. Be carefull not to catch the acrylic template with the router bit or other cutting tools as it will chip unlike polycarbonate. I remove the cavity waste wood with a forestner bit first and then use the template to clean up the job.

Makes things quick and easy.

A well made, accurate template. If you're going to use humbuckers you're going to need it. I hog out material to depth with a 1/2" bit and use a 3/8" bit on the corners for a little extra wiggle room.

good starter templates so you can make thicker ones.

This is the perfect template to use for a Humbucker Cavity. Make sure to use bearing on your rotor bit so you dont cut in the template

A little thin, but well made. Must be handled carefully.

Like these a lot, I've bought two and stuck them together, gives a better guide for your first pass.

Great Template

I'm a first time builder and this template was great. The screw holes on the template matched up perfectly for my SD triple shot mounting ring. The centre lines are great for getting everything square.

Humbucker Routing Template

By Pat Green from UK

Essential for neat cavities, my only criticism is it is thin. I've bought 2 of these as I chewed the edges of the first withdrawing the router and also found that if I only used one bearing it slipped under the template spoiling the neat edges. So I now have the bit shank completely covered in bearings plus I have fixed the template to a 15 mm thick timber 'frame' that extends the depth of the template.

Be careful of this one

Not all humbuckers are the same. So this template, while well made and easily useable, will be oversized for some humbuckers (seymour duncan in my case) and their mounting rings. Check before routing.
