For a p90 rout, this is excellent, had no problems since getting it, all p90's I've fit after using this for the pocket fit comfortably but not tight or loose. As with all plastic/acrylic templates, use it to make a duplicate template out of 3/4 oak or something then use that...
I can't say enough about the P90's. Back when I was young and fullish, I took the P90's off of my 1964 Gold top Les Paul and installed Humbuckers because that was the thing then. Sadly the Gibson got busted and could not be resored but I found the P90's in my parts drawer and built an unbelievable sounding axe by using this template.
Does the trick for sure.
I used this template to do a P90 neck rout on a single-humbucker Ibanez roadstar guitar. Even with a 3/8 bit, the corners are a very tight fit for most any p90 style pickup. The first thing I did was use the template to make a thicker one out of mdf; it's too thin to use on its own. Worked great though!
These templates have a smaller corner radius than my stock Gibson covers and body cutout....It looks like Gibson used a 1/2" corner radius and these seem to be 3/8"..The smaller radius does fit the stewmac pickup covers , but not the Gibson..I would like to see a 1/2" corner version available also..
They're good for making thicker templates
I haven't used it yet, but have used other stew-mac templates. They are all great, you just need to take your time, and learn how to use them properly. It is also a great idea to make thicker templates out of MDF first, because if you mess up your master templates, you'll have to order new ones.
I used this on my LP with excellent results. I love the Gibson minis and this also gives me the choice of swapping over to P90s. The template worked well and I've since ordered the full-size 'bucker template too.
OK - it's very nicely made, clean, accurate but for P-90s, which have the mounting screws between the pole pieces, it leaves two ugly screwholes in the guitar top. However I couldn't come up with an idea how t avoid that right now either....
Great product. Very precise. There are laser etched center lines running north to south and east to west, making perfect alignment a breeze. Fit my P90 perfectly.
