Neck Joint Routing Template For Fender

About This Item

For guitars and basses. Accurate template for Fender and guitars with bolt-on necks.

Dual-purpose: with patterns for both guitar and bass. Laser-cut acrylic with accurate centerline.

Use this template with our 1/2" Ball Bearing Router Bit to create a clean neck pocket for guitar or bass.

The template is slightly oversize to allow for variations in neck width and finish thickness. To rout a smaller neck pocket, reduce the template size by adding a few layers of binding tape. To learn more see instructions.

Note: both the guitar and bass routs are shaped for necks with radiused heels (Strat®, Jaguar, P-Bass®, J-Bass®). The guitar rout is not intended for use with Telecaster® necks (which have a square heel). Typical neck joint rout depth for a Fender® guitar or bass neck is 5/8".

didnt work for me

(Customer's Reviews)

I can only speak for the guitar side of this template. I am a first time builder and I bought a replacement strat neck with maple fingerboard. This template was a little too big. I had to trace the neck and make my own template. Stewmac has a tip to put tape on the inside but the tape comes off as you rout.

I'm satisfied with this item. It's easy to use and works great, a little oversized so that is not good for using it for a genuine Fender so you have to do something so you get it right, but for my use it does not matter as I build the body and neck. I give it four star because of oversized and a little thin but it's easy to use and an ok item.


A must have...

Excellent product. Makes neck routes a breeze. Thickness of acrylic is perfect. I use double sided tape to keep the template secure.
