This control cavity template set strikes an ideal balance between big enough to contain a variety of controls, and small enough not to remove half of the guitar body. Perfect for any rear-route / no-pickguard project.
The template arrived quickly and we put her to use immediately .
The accuracy was incredible. We used all three components . The main cavity, the lip for the cover , and the cover itself. all fit perfectly ! We made a rosewood cover to match the clients fingerboard. He was very happy too.
We can only imagine that the other Potvin templates are engineered to this high standards.

Great stuff Mike! The quality and precision Mike puts in his work is well worth the money! Danny M. on 2017 Jan 1st
I couldn't find a set like this anywhere in Australia,after much searching I found the Potvin page. Absolute lifesaver!!!! No-one else offers a perfectly cut set of templates for what i always thought must be a high demand job, from thick mdf that's ready to go out of the box and at great prices. I opened the package today to find a handwritten note from Mike included, thanking me for my order and my patience!!! One of the great guys right there!!!!!
Can't thank you enough! :-) Shannon on 2016 Aug 30th
Mike's templates are miles ahead of the cheaper plastic templates that you can buy. With this set, fit and matching between the three pieces was perfect. The extra thickness of these is especially helpful for routing the recess for the cavity cover - since this needs to be fairly shallow, a nice thick template is required to be able to route it without needing an insanely short router bit. These are ready to use just as received, without the need to make a copy on thicker material. Paul on 2016 May 24th
Thank you for making a template that is usable right out of the box.
Most are too thin and unsafe, requiring you to make a new set from thicker stock.
The 3 piece set is another plus. The cover plate template is included...and fits well.

This is a really nice set. Everything lines up perfectly. The quality is great and the cuts are perfect. Plus 3/4" MDF just makes more sense than thin plastic. Well worth the money. Unknown on 2016 May 2nd
Awesome cavity control template...saved me hours of layout time and an absolute flawless fit. Thanks Mike! Daniel Vincent on 2016 Feb 22nd
Mike never ceases to amaze. These are great templates, and worth twice the price when compared to the time they save by avoiding "cut-close-to-the-line-and-sand-to-fit" time and frustration.
Buy these. In fact, buy THEM ALL Chris Lathan on 2015 Feb 23rd
one of my pet hates is guitars with non recessed cavity covers. This set is spot on, not only do you get a decent sized cavity template, but a template for the recessed cover and a cover template! All in 3/4" MDF that you don't need to mess around with to be able to use. Best set I've seen and absolutely perfect for what I want!

I bought these to use on some guitars requiring more space in the control cavity (coil splits, perhaps a piezo) and wasn't disappointed. These are way better than the cheap plastic or low grade pressboard templates. They are thick enough for the bearing to ride on the edge without any gouging and the size is perfect. You can't beat the price either. S. Familo - Owner, Familo Guitarworks on 2014 Dec 12th
