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.

Nice but not thick enough

These are nice but they are really only good for making your own templates from. Maybe that is their intended use. The mini humbucker does not fit the Golden Age P90.

Easy, Easy, Easy!!!

I love this template. The centerline is very helpful in aligning the location and I finished the job in no time.

Works like a charm!

Bought this at the same time as the neck routing template and this one also worked like a charm on my very first attempt at routing the pickup cavities! Thanks for the great quality products!

Seems Fine

Just got my template. It's a little thin, but the holes seem to line up fine with my pickup rings. I might make a copy to some thicker MDF to use and have this as a master.

Make job much more easier

i order this item and used it to make other advice to other user is make it a bit smaller than the original tempalates..For les paul you had to make custom templates because les paul body not flat..Its bit tricky but hey that's what customizing job is all about and that's the fun of it..Good job stewmac

Item #1094

I've been doing business with Stew-Mac about three years and I have been pleased with the exception of this product. I usually make my own templates but I decided to give this a try to save a little time. I disagree about the material and the construction on the other reviews it is very sturdy. Plain and simple it is not the right dimensions for a body cavity route. Ive tried three different types of pickup mounts and they barely cover it. A good start but needs more work.

Good, but a challenge on a Les Paul belly....

This thing is GREAT for guitars with flat tops. I recently used it to add a middle pickup cavity on a guitar for Kenny Chesney. Due to the typical LP "belly", the template rocked. I taped two together and then taped maple shims on each end with binding tape. This kept the template from rocking. Then, using the supplied screw holes, I screwed it all down. Routing was a breeze and it turned out great! I'm planning on modding this template with add-on adjustable feet on the corners for non-flat guitar tops.

Thin and fragile

Unlike polycarbonate templates, these will easily chip, if not shatter, if they make contact with your router bit. I've gone threw at least 4 of these because of this mistake. These templates are a bit on the thin side as well which doesn't help to improve its fragility. If I would have found another company that makes these, I would have bought from them first.
