The classic '62 S-Style Template set is available in a variety of configurations. Choose from top routed (the "normal" S-Style with a pickguard), or back routed (no pickguard). For the rear route version you'll want to also add the control cavity set to your order. Once you've chosen top or back route, you can choose from a few pickup options. A standard S-Style would be SSS, but you can also choose HSS (humbucker in the bridge position) or HSH. The USS option (available only with top routing) has a universal route in the bridge position to allow a humbucker or single coil. When ordering the USS option, please indicate which pickguard you want (SSS or HSS) in the order notes.
1/2" MDF with engraved center lines and reference markings.
Requires body blank minimum 18.5" x 13" (47cm x 33)
Requires neck blank minimum 26" x 4" (66cm x 10)
By far the best templates I've ever used. I would recommend these templates to anyone looking to build a '62 Strat style guitar. The service is fantastic! Ed on 2015 Nov 1st
These are spot on and stellar templates. Perfect for all levels of builders. Matt Meyer on 2015 Jun 1st
Have to say this was an excellent choice... Mike has been nothing short of amazing in responsiveness to questions, and delivery of a quality product. 3 in progress now... and surely I'll be using these more. each piece ensures perfect alignment with the others. Great stuff Mike! Jim H. on 2015 Apr 14th
That's what you'll get when you order one of Mike's templates... Excellence in quality, precision and craftsmanship. A pleasure to do business with.
Thanks Mike! D. on 2015 Jan 23rd
Bought this set from Mike to replace my torn up old ones, and they are perfect in every way! So much is included, to literally make almost every part of a Strat style guitar, beginning to end! Unknown on 2014 Dec 15th
Mike's templates are the best out there. Excellent craftsmanship with speedy customer service. I had a special request on my Strat set and he was more than willing to accommodate. Was super fast in his responses when I had questions. I always got a response within 24 hrs most of the responses were within a couple of hours. Craig Clay on 2014 Dec 14th
Mikes templates are the finest on the market. Pin point accuracy, exception quality and a great service. Jeff Guilford - JJ Guitars on 2014 Dec 14th
These are the best I have found by far. Strong, Accurate and a biggie...they have center lines! Mike has always been ace to deal with!!! If you are looking at these... look no further... you have found the right templates! John Palir - Owner of Palir Guitars on 2014 Dec 14th
these are the best templates you will find for your builds, they are dead on & Mike will customize them anyway you want like he did for me! Mark Funk on 2014 Dec 13th
I purchased this set initially as part of another template order. Having compared the templates to just about everything else available, these are undoubtedly the best you can buy. Pinpoint accuracy, greater thickness and material quality, and it is actually a very versatile set. I used the neck pocket template over a dozen times to make other bolt-on templates and guitars, and it is absolutely perfect - resulting in a better fit than most of my commercially built instruments.
