Jazz Bass Pickup Routing Templates

About This Item

Transparent acrylic templates to rout for Jazz Bass® 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 Template

(Customer's Reviews)

The rout was crisp and clean and the gap between pickup cover and rout was minimal, much less than some of the recent Fenders I've seen in the shops. Butting the two templates together with the centreline gives you 4" from centre of pickup to centre of pickup, which just happens to be the 70's J spacing, which is very handy and makes life easy.


Utterly destroyed by router bearing

(Customer's Reviews)

I tried both of my trusty Stew Mac template router bits (1/2" and 3/8" bearings) with this jazz bass pickup template and both of their bearings quickly melted right in letting the cutter chew far into the edges. This of course ruined the template and, luckily, only a piece of mdf - not my bass I've been working on for months! This template was brand new just out of the mail.

I've used a few other Stew Mac router templates in the past and this never happened.. did they use a lower grade plastic by accident?

Anyway, I put this review here to warn you to try the template on scrap first because you may well destroy your guitar if you trust the template.
