Neck Pocket Routing Template for Fender

About This Item

Create perfectly shaped bolt-on neck pockets.

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

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. 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.

Neck Pocket Routing Templates are for routing the body cavity to accept a Fender-shaped guitar or bass bolt-on neck. Each sold separately.

#2276 For Guitar has a radiused heel profile on one end, shaped for Stratocaster®, Jaguar®, Jazzmaster®, and Mustang® necks. The opposite end has a square heel for a Telecaster® neck.

#2277 For Bass is shaped for necks with radiused heels. One end is sized for Jazz Bass® and P-Bass®, while the other is for Fender short scales, like Musicmaster® and Mustang®.

  • Outer dimension: 18" x 3-7/8" (457mm x 98.42mm)

perfect for speedy pockets. too bad my router got away from me on a cotton wood project and took a couple chunks out of template.. so sad i am!! its still usable though. cottonwood sucks for a body build.. nothin but a ruff time.

So I have this old Kramer guitar body that I bought at Guitar Center gazillion years ago. I got the body for 50 bucks. Great deal, right? Well the neck pocket was misrouted. It was canted about 3 degrees foward. Like a Les Paul, but why would a flat top guitar have that much neck angle? The bridge would have had to be over an inch above the body. Makes no sense. What did make sense was the StewMac Routing Template. Lined everything up, measured twice, and cut once. Now, I'm waiting for the glue to dry on the pocket shim I made and I'll route the pocket to depth. Sometimes the right tool is worth the extra expense. And I can use it on future Tele and Strat builds. So all is right with the world.

Kinda expensive for a piece of plastic but it worked great. Used some tape like the stewmac video showed. Perfect fit.

I ordered this by accident; I meant to get the Fender guitar template. I boxed it back up and just before I taped up the box I decided to keep it as I may build a bass or 2 or 15 in the future. I ordered the guitar template and used it directly to make one from MDF which I put to use, I made mine a little longer and wider so I have more clamping options. Works great, I added some binding tape to the inside of the MDF template to snug up the fit BTW.

I 'm starting a new build and wanted to do it right. I decided to plunk down the cash for the stewmac templates and am i glad i did !. I have a fender strat neck from another guitar and checked it against the template . It fits well ( a little large as shown in the demo video) but that's easily addressed with tape on the template ( again , like the demo ) . I've no regrets.
