Pickup Routing Templates for P-Bass

About This Item

Create perfectly shaped pickup cavities for Precision Bass®.

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 P-Bass are for routing the body cavity and for the pickup cutout in the pickguard. Includes a set of 2 templates, drill bit, indexing pins and instructions.

  • 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.

Great Templates


Verified Buyer

These are great templates! It's a great idea to drill the corner holes first - cuts way down on the chisel work yayyy. My one and only complaint about them is that they could be a little tighter around the pickup, but they aren't outlandishly too big so that is not a major concern. Once again, thank you Stew Mac!


Great template


Verified Buyer

Easy to use and finally worth the stew mac price because by the time i make my own and purchase the material for a template, it evens out but saves a lot of time to use and buy this template. It was a little big for the pickup I used but I painted the pick up hole black so you cant tell it;s not a tight fit. I could have checked that out and added tape to the template to reduce to opening Duh!!!
