Pickup Routing Templates for Humbucker

About This Item

Create perfectly shaped pickup cavities every time.

Accurate template placement is easy—crystal clear routing templates allow you to see the guitar body underneath. Simply align the template's laser etched centerlines with the markings on your guitar to get the placement right every time.

StewMac's improved templates are now thicker with smooth laser-cut edges. Correct depth measurements are etched right on the template, so you don't need to puzzle over cavity dimensions, we've done that work for you.

"These improved, thicker templates mean I don't have to shim or double up templates to get contact with the router bearing."
—Erick Coleman, guitar repairman and StewMac tech advisor

Pickup Routing Templates for Humbuckers are for routing the body cavity and for the pickup cutout in the pickguard. Each sold separately.

  • Thickness: 3/8" (9.53mm)
  • Outer dimension: 5-7/8" x 3-7/8" (149.22mm x 98.42mm)
  • Clear acrylic
  • Laser etched centerlines and depth measurements
  • Countersunk holes for anchoring the template with flathead screws

Create precision cavities every time: Align the template's centerlines with those you drew on your guitar. All you need is Double-stick Tape to keep the template in place. Optional: use flat head screws dropped into the counter-sunk holes—the router glides right over them. Use the Bosch Colt Router to lower your Ball-bearing Router Bit into the wood and make several shallow passes until the bearing rides smoothly along the template edge. When the bearing can ride against the cavity wall, remove the template so you can rout to the recommended depth engraved on your template.

Well made template

I had to replace my last one I killed with a router. I recessed the lead holes and now it’s perfect!

Better than the old ones

By

Verified Buyer


Bought this new template as I burned my old one with a seized bearing. I love the new depth and the info for depths being right on the plate. I only wish there was another version of this with smaller pickup ear cutouts, to make body mounted pickup cavities look nicer.

Routing template

By

Verified Buyer


Just used my new template, in conjunction with the ball bearing router bits, and it was awesome! The laser cut guide lines and the countersunk screw holes made lining it up and keeping it in place a breeze! I would like to offer a suggestion, I think a second template with two oval holes for routing the adjustment tab holes would be a great addition, it would make routing the inside of the recesses as clean and precise as the outside. All in all, an excellent tool!

Love it so much I bought another one

This template is perfect for the pickup cavity... Love it so much that when I nicked *and exploded* the one I had I stopped what I was doing and ordered a replacement. I was shocked at the damage that was done by the router bit, but stupid is as stupid does my mamma always says.

Great aid

Very inexpensive considering the time and effort that would go in making one from scratch. The Fender and Gibson dimension are a nice touch. It is not thick enough for my router bit, but it's my fault for not using the 1/2" long bit from StewMac.

Works great and at least gets you in the ball park. Reasonable price too for once. I have used three or 4 of these and they do a great job.
