Single-coil Pickup Routing Templates

About This Item

Transparent acrylic templates to rout for Strat® and Tele® pickups.

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 thin.

By
(Customer's Reviews)


Relatively good product. It is the right size for a Strat pickup and I love the lines. However, it is too thin to use a router bearing guide. I ended up grinding the brass guide to under 1/4 inch so I could use this template. Then I used this one to make a thicker template from MDF.

Excelent!

Just routed a tele pickup cavity using this template for the first time. It was perfect! It's probably a good idea to make your templates on MDF using this ones, as others say, but if you're careful I don't think there should be any problem.

I've used other templates from Stew-mac and I have been very pleased so far. This one is no different. Take your time and you should have no problems!

melted

It gets a F for durability, as for the cut and finish of the product it was great. I used the plastic single coil pickup routing jig and it melted using the plunge 0583 routing bit with doubled up bearings and messed up a guitar that I'm building. I am very upset to say the least. I was going to leave open pickup cavities with no pick guard but that is now changed. I normally use wood templates for plunging that I have made for the basses I build. My suggestion is to use the plastic template to make a template out of some leftover hardwood laying around to use on your guitar. I have another suggestion for Stew Mac is to have them CNC'ed in aluminum, hardwood or something that isn't going to melt.

I have the full set foe strats and humbucker. i use these to make thicker templates and keep these as masters. but the work great by themselves if you use shims.

Tele Bridge

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I've got, and used a few of these templates now and all except the P-Bass are excellent. Be careful to check against your bridge though, as this template suits the Vintage bridge but not the later Am Std; the thru-holes are in a different position. The actual pickup route is acurate just check for the holes.

Good Templates

I haven't used them yet, but have used other stew-mac templates. They are all great, you just need to take your time, and learn how to use them properly. It is also a great idea to make thicker templates out of MDF first, because if you mess up your master templates, you'll have to order new ones.
