Accurate fret slots without guesswork. Designed for use with our Fret Slotting Miter Box, or your shop table saw.

Each template is made of durable stainless steel and has notches for two different fret scales. Includes an indexing pin and instructions.

These templates provide accurate fret positioning for guitar, bass, banjo, mandolin, or ukulele.
#4914 - #4919 guitar and bass templates allow for 24 fret slots.
#4911 baritone and #4912 bass templates provide 22 fret slots.
#4920 banjo / mandolin template will locate 22 frets for banjo and 29 for mandolin.
#4909 ukulele template will provide locations for 18 frets and the #4910 ukulele template will locate 20 fret slots.

Special notes:

#4915 Martin Dreadnought scale is commonly referred to as 25.4" but is actually 25.34".

#4916 For Fender 25.5" includes fretboard cut-off and nut positions. Also for 25" scales like Paul Reed Smith®, Dobro®, Danelectro®, and Benedetto.

#4914 and #4917 We offer templates for Gibson's 25.3" long scale, plus three shorter Gibson scales. Over the years, Gibson has referred to each of the shorter scales as 24-3/4".

For use with a table saw: Install the supplied index pin in the fence of your table saw. Attach a template to the back of the fingerboard. On your table saw, align the blade perpendicular to the fingerboard, and saw the slots with the template side up. We recommend a Fret Slotting Table Saw Blade.

For use with a luthier's miter box: Simply attach a template to the back of the fingerboard, and saw each fret slot after locating the index pin (preinstalled in our miter box) in the corresponding template notch. We recommend our Fret Slotting Miter Box.

What can I say?

How can you go wrong. It is very accurate and I just love it.

So glad the development crew at StewMac created these uke templates. Glad to help. Best templates available anywhere! They make my work so much easier.

essential tool

By Milagra Dulce' Guitar works from Oregon

I use the fender and Gibson scales on MOST necks as they are what most people request. The bass scale does standard and long (5 string) scales. With the miter box or a table saw it makes production way faster or gives the first timer the chance to make it perfect the first time.

Heavy metal quality and a real time saver for my workshop!

Good but lacking templates for classical guitars

By Ciro Marzio from Napoli - Italy
(Customer's Reviews) Thursday, May 02, 2013

I am using this guide since 6 or seven years, and it works quite good. Problem is that only 650 and 660 mm templates are available for classical guitar. Adding the popular 640, 645, 655 and 664 mm would make this miter box close to ideal.

Well made

I own a few of the older ones made from acrylic and am glad you switched to stainless. They will last a lifetime and then some. A+

Nice stuff!
