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.

Excellent quality

I bought a couple of different templates for humbucker’s . They’re made from really high grade material. I tried them on a scrap piece of wood.. they work superbly..

not for direct mounted pickups

By

Verified Buyer


The description states "body route" but doesn't say ideal for use with pickup mounting rings nor does it say not ideal for direct mount pickups. The gap between the body and the pickup is significant if you're going for a nice direct mount look, which I am.

Response from StewMac


Hi Dwayne,

Thanks for sharing your honest feedback with us, we genuinely appreciate that. We are sorry that you were not happy with the template you purchased. It is based on the cavity of a 1959 Les Paul which indeed does use a mounting ring. You can reduce the size of the route by wrapping the bearing in tape as it sets the cutter further away from the template for a tighter rout. Be sure to practice on a piece of scrap to ensure the proper fit on your guitar. It may take a few test runs to determine how much tape to wrap around the bearing.

No stressing out over routs!

By

Verified Buyer


My first extensive modification project included routing the body to fit a Humbucker. Was thinking of how to not "mickey-mouse" the rout when I came across this template (I had originally seen the full set, which, was overkill for my needs).
This template took all of the stress out of the cut, and especially appreciated the wisdom of getting a top-bearing bit. Got the guitar routed quickly, cleanly, and the project was wrapped up professionally!
Highly suggest this!

Works very well.

The new, thicker template is easier to use and does not require raising the template for the first passes.
