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 Template

I'm a first time builder and this template was great. The screw holes on the template matched up perfectly for my SD triple shot mounting ring. The centre lines are great for getting everything square.

Humbucker Routing Template

Essential for neat cavities, my only criticism is it is thin. I've bought 2 of these as I chewed the edges of the first withdrawing the router and also found that if I only used one bearing it slipped under the template spoiling the neat edges. So I now have the bit shank completely covered in bearings plus I have fixed the template to a 15 mm thick timber 'frame' that extends the depth of the template.

Be careful of this one

Not all humbuckers are the same. So this template, while well made and easily useable, will be oversized for some humbuckers (seymour duncan in my case) and their mounting rings. Check before routing.

Does what it does.

I purchased one and use it to make my own out of Plexiglass. This way if the router gets in it, I just bang out a new one.

Good - but too thin.

Excellent quality; I docked a star because the template is simply too thin. Good for making your own thicker templates - but if I wanted to make my own humbucker templates, I wouldn't have ordered one online. Still, after I made a thicker template from it using a pattern router bit, it did the job in the end.

Excellent template

I is a little thin, however, I built a matching spacer out of scrap wood and now it is the perfect height. It really speeds things up compared to routing freehand.

Tout y est, axe longitudinal, transversal, trous de vis évasés, mais pour pour etre parfait il devrait etre bien plus epais.

First Pickup Rout

For my first time rout this was breeze and just awesome. It was easy to use and I would recommend to anyone needing a template. The X-Y alignment on the template made for easy placement.
