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.

Thicker

(Customer's Reviews)


Basically there would be no need to prop these templates up higher if they were built thicker in the first place. Once you get the initial route started in the wood, your bearing wheel will take over the rest of the way and you can remove the template...so why not just build the template thicker? Otherwise they are good...except I've already chipped mine out, ruining it because I was tired of building splints for it and tried to just use it as is, and set my bearing wheel to a sliver to catch the template...but of course it slipped. Anyway, it's kind of making me angry just thinking about it.

Good, basic template

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.

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.

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

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

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.
