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 Layout and Routing Accessory

Use it as a template, so that the cavity in the guitar body is the correct size for a single coil pickup, and does not look less than professional. Be careful to do the routing in stages, otherwise, the template might not last. The plexiglass is thick enough for repeated use.

Excelent!

Just routed a tele pickup cavity using this template for the first time. It was perfect! It's probably a good idea to make your templates on MDF using this ones, as others say, but if you're careful I don't think there should be any problem.

Nice template

I've used other templates from Stew-mac and I have been very pleased so far. This one is no different. Take your time and you should have no problems!

melted

It gets a F for durability, as for the cut and finish of the product it was great. I used the plastic single coil pickup routing jig and it melted using the plunge 0583 routing bit with doubled up bearings and messed up a guitar that I'm building. I am very upset to say the least. I was going to leave open pickup cavities with no pick guard but that is now changed. I normally use wood templates for plunging that I have made for the basses I build. My suggestion is to use the plastic template to make a template out of some leftover hardwood laying around to use on your guitar. I have another suggestion for Stew Mac is to have them CNC'ed in aluminum, hardwood or something that isn't going to melt.

Tele Bridge

I've got, and used a few of these templates now and all except the P-Bass are excellent. Be careful to check against your bridge though, as this template suits the Vintage bridge but not the later Am Std; the thru-holes are in a different position. The actual pickup route is acurate just check for the holes.

Good Templates

I haven't used them 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.

Perfect master templates

I bought these upon reading reviews with the idea that I would use them as master templates. I successfully cut a second larger based template out of 6mm thick MDF material which is perfect for pickup routing templates and this means I can keep these SM templates safe for when the MDF templates have done enough.

I would only use these as master templates as they would probably get scuffed/scratched through every day use.

Well worth the price, and made cutting pickup templates very easy.
