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.

too wide

By

Verified Buyer


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

Verified Buyer


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

Verified Buyer


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.

I love this template. The centerline is very helpful in aligning the location and I finished the job in no time.

Works like a charm!

Verified Buyer


Bought this at the same time as the neck routing template and this one also worked like a charm on my very first attempt at routing the pickup cavities!

Thanks for the great quality products!

Seems Fine

Verified Buyer


Just got my template. It's a little thin, but the holes seem to line up fine with my pickup rings. I might make a copy to some thicker MDF to use and have this as a master.

Item #1094

By

Verified Buyer


I've been doing business with Stew-Mac about three years and I have been pleased with the exception of this product. I usually make my own templates but I decided to give this a try to save a little time. I disagree about the material and the construction on the other reviews it is very sturdy. Plain and simple it is not the right dimensions for a body cavity route. Ive tried three different types of pickup mounts and they barely cover it. A good start but needs more work.

Good, but a challenge on a Les Paul belly....

By

Verified Buyer


This thing is GREAT for guitars with flat tops. I recently used it to add a middle pickup cavity on a guitar for Kenny Chesney. Due to the typical LP "belly", the template rocked. I taped two together and then taped maple shims on each end with binding tape. This kept the template from rocking. Then, using the supplied screw holes, I screwed it all down. Routing was a breeze and it turned out great! I'm planning on modding this template with add-on adjustable feet on the corners for non-flat guitar tops.

Thin and fragile

By

Verified Buyer


Unlike polycarbonate templates, these will easily chip, if not shatter, if they make contact with your router bit. I've gone threw at least 4 of these because of this mistake. These templates are a bit on the thin side as well which doesn't help to improve its fragility. If I would have found another company that makes these, I would have bought from them first.
