Tremolo Routing Templates

About This Item

Clear templates for Stratocasters® and clones having standard Fender-style, Floyd Rose® or Schaller locking tremolos with rear-routed spring cavities.

The most precise routing templates available. Helpful centerlines are laser-etched to aid proper placement, eliminate guesswork and produce cleaner results. Transparent acrylic, 3/16" (4.76mm) thick. Instructions included.

These time-saving templates can be attached to the body with countersunk screws or double-stick tape. We recommend ball-bearing router bits for best results.


#1110 Strat templates are for tremolos with either 2-7/32" (56.36mm) mounting screw spacing, or 2-3/16" (55.56mm) mounting stud spacing. Use for installing these tremolos:



Gotoh Traditional Tremolo for Strat


Wilkinson/Gotoh VS-100N Tremolo


Wilkinson/Gotoh VSVG Vintage Tremolo

#1118 Floyd Rose templates are for installation of the following tremolos, or other tremolos with 2-15/16" (74.61mm) mounting stud spacing.



Schaller Locking Tremolo


Golden Age Locking Tremolo

#1119 template for recessed tremolo is modify the front cavity to allow extra arm travel for super whammy action. Recessing the tremolo creates extra clearance at the rear of the unit, and increases the range of upward arm movement. The tremolo (and the strings) can be closer to the guitar's face, reducing the need for neck shims. For tremolos with 2-15/16" (74.61mm) mounting stud spacing.

Makes Vintage Drilling a Strat Simple

For dowelling and re-drilling this Mex-Strat for a Vintage Bridge, this template made a tough job simple. After the dowels were glued into place, I used this template to drill the mounting holes for the bridge. Just something about the tone of the vintage Strat bridge with steel tone block that's well worth it.

Ehh....

Not what it claimed to be. Although this is a nice, quality template, It does not accurately fit the wilkinson/gotoh vs100 trem, as I was informed by Stewmac that it would not only fit it, but perfectly. Once I received the template, I placed trem inside (and on several different angles and axis) and it didn't line up properly where the bridge pins are supposed to go. If I had a Strat, this would be perfect... but I don't, so it is a $13.75 paper weight. There should be more detailed information on it... or any of these for that matter. A little disappointed.

Makes routing for a tremolo a breeze!

I purchased the set for a traditional Strat tremolo, and believe me, these are worth the little bit of money! Since I don't have a template following router bit I didn't use them as a template, but with the precise cutting of them, and the detailed instructions, I could simply put them where they needed to be, trace inside them, and route this with a regular router bit and some guides clamped on to the body. Even like that (although it takes a little longer) it works very smoothly! Without these I do not think I would have ever wanted to build a guitar with a tremolo, but these save so much time, hassle, guessing, and precision work that it almost makes routing the cavity fun! The picture shown is of the rear cavity in an American black walnut Strat body that I'm currently building.

I don't have workshop or a drill press, so my first try at drilling holes for a classic strat trem didn't go so well. After gluing some dowels, this template got me back in business. Lesson learned.
