Instructions
A standard router base tilts on an archtop instrument; the bindings won't fit right. The TrueChannel turns your laminate router into a floating cutter. As you move the body of the instrument into the cutter, your router glides vertically to follow the body's top edge. Bindings fit correctly—you won't have to scrape them too thin.

Improved! Close-tolerance V-groove ball-bearing rollers and a beefier support post make the TrueChannel the smoothest, steadiest, most accurate binding routing jig available.

SAVE when you buy the router bit set with your TrueChannel jig!

The Complete TrueChannel jig includes
  • Rock-steady aluminum router support post with carriage
  • 4 body support blocks that adjust for body shapes and heights
  • A shaped plywood guitar body cradle, and assembly instructions

SAVE when you order the jig with our #1298 Binding Router Bit Set. Designed especially for luthiers, the set features a super-sharp carbide-tipped bit with 1/4" arbor, and custom bearings for cutting the most common binding widths.

The TrueChannel fits the popular Bosch Colt Router.

Get the router mounting template to easily adapt the TrueChannel to common laminate trimmers (instructions included).

Save production time when you get additional parts:
  • With additional router carriages, you can have any number of routers installed and ready to rout the binding channels you use frequently.
  • Setup for multiple body shapes with additional body support blocks and plywood cradles.

Our thanks to luthier Tom Ribbecke, who inspired this jig.

Money well spent

This jig is well worth the money, even for your first project. If you are enthusiastic enough to try your hand at guitar building, don't settle for less. Once you have used this jig, you are certain to build a few more guitars. Cutting the binding channels on my first two projects was a nightmare and they were not perfect. Thanks to this jig, my bindings on acoustic and electric guitars are now perfect every time.
