Instructions
We designed this handy jig here in our shops, to solve the tricky router alignment problems you'll encounter when creating or correcting a bridge saddle slot.

It's become a repair shop "must-have," with versatile time-saving uses that will give you easy, accurate results every time.

Slot a new bridge
Slot for a compensated saddle—split saddles too!
Fix an incorrectly located saddle
Flatten the bottom of a slot for an undersaddle pickup
  (crucial for proper pickup response)

The jig works seamlessly with our Precision Router Base and your Dremel. Don't have a Dremel? An adapter for the popular Bosch Colt router is also included (you can drill it to fit other brands of laminate trimmers, too).

Simply clamp the jig at the guitar's soundhole and tailblock. It's made of clear acrylic for easy positioning, with sponge padding to help level the jig on arched soundboards. Thumbscrews allow precise fingertip adjustment of cutter alignment, saddle compensation, slot length and width. Clear acrylic adapter plates are included.

Instructions are supplied with the jig. Clamps, router base and Dremel not included.

TIP: Before using the jig, you'll need to know precisely where to rout. The Saddlematic and the Intonator take away the guesswork.

Does more than it says on the tin

Excellent piece of kit - easy to set up and more precise than I had hoped. I'm glad I didn't waste time and money trying to build one
