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

Verified Buyer


These should be made from a thicker material. The inner edge is to thin to confidently ride the guide bearing. I have ruined a couple of these because of the difference in how some bits are set up. One of my bits had too much of a gap between the cutter and the bearing, ruined! They are well made but going forward,I will be affixing them to a thicker sudstrate.

Have no doubt and route it out!

I had a client bring in a Tele and he wanted a middle pickup installed in it. He wanted use his existing pickguard. I've got lots of router templates from lots of other suppliers but I found that I didn't have the ones I needed for this project. I ordered the appropriate templates from Stew-Mac and the results were excellent and professional as usual. My only gripe at all is that they really need to made from thicker plexi. I had to ship them up a little but that's no biggee.

Bought the Tele bridge template to tighten up some inconsistencies on an aftermarket body. Worked like a charm.

T-style Route Template

By

Verified Buyer


I recently had a need for a T-Style template to route for the bridge pup on a 24" scale project for a customer. The pup dimensions look to be correct. The string hole spacing match some of the bridgeplates I use but are off maybe 1/64" on some others. Not enough to stop the job for sure. I think it lines up with Fender plates best. Has a center line etched on both sides. It is the same thickness as my bearing and leaves no room for error. All in all it got the job done and it looks professional so if you want your job to look like a pro did it, this template will do the trick.

Pretty good

These templates are pretty decent, however, they're a little thin and slightly oversized. The oversize is to account for variation between individual instruments, which is understandable. They could be a little thicker though.

Too thin.

By

Verified Buyer


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.
