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.

Great value for a superb simple tool

It's true, you can make templates for yourself, but these are so reasonably priced it would cost more in labor and materials to DIY.

Another advantage of these: Fender pickup-placement is less than optimal for single coil pickups near the neck. Many players have discovered that harmonics are mysteriously missing on their Strat neck-pickup. That's because the standard Fender-spec placement is at a node. Moving the neck pickup forward or backward just 1/8th inch, you can find those "ghost" harmonics. Also, these individual templates allow you to flip the Tele bridge pickup for lefties, or to tame the brittle tone of a right-slanted bridge pickup.

Stew-mac has many good products, but this is by far one of their best values. It's a case where the economy of scale really benefits the buyer and allows the seller to make a fair profit too.

These are accurate, simple, smooth, inexpensive and durable. Centerlines are a great feature for alignment on clear acrylic. Highly recommended!
