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.

Must-have for routing accuracy...

These templates are really the answer for making routs that look fantastic. A friend of mine (who is really good with a router) recently made a bass without templates, and his routs are only nearly perfect. I would definitely recommend spending the few dollars for the outcome you deserve. One thing that I would change: don't use the holes to screw the template to anything (like a practice piece). The template will crack. Some brass grommets in these holes would prevent this problem, but would probably add to the cost. Tape and clamps are just fine to hold it in place, so leave the screw gun on the shelf.

Utterly destroyed by router bearing

I tried both of my trusty Stew Mac template router bits (1/2" and 3/8" bearings) with this jazz bass pickup template and both of their bearings quickly melted right in letting the cutter chew far into the edges. This of course ruined the template and, luckily, only a piece of mdf - not my bass I've been working on for months! This template was brand new just out of the mail.

I've used a few other Stew Mac router templates in the past and this never happened.. did they use a lower grade plastic by accident?

Anyway, I put this review here to warn you to try the template on scrap first because you may well destroy your guitar if you trust the template.

OK, but could be better

The Templates are dead on for the geometry. The pickups fit well in the cavity. But. the templates are only 1/4" thick; really should be about 3/8" The problem I have is that the bearing on the bit is about 1/4" wide, and there is always about 1/16" to 3/64" gap between the bottom of the bearing to the top of the cutter. If you set the depth to have good engagement between the bearing and the template, you end up with an uncut ridge at the top of the cavity. If you set up to cut the wood full depth you lose about 1/3 of the bearing engagement on the plastic. Not a good thing with a hard bearing against soft plastic.

Perfect fit

As long as you use the right bits these are the best way to rout out pickup cavities.
