Create perfectly shaped tremolo cavities for Stratocasters® and clones having standard Fender-style, Floyd Rose® or Schaller locking tremolos with rear-routed spring cavities.
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.
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. 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.
