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.

BOUGHT THIS SET AND THE QUALITY IS FAR SUPERIOR TO THE OTHER OPTIONS AVAILABLE TODAY. NICE THICK ACCURATE TEMPLATES MAKING THE WHOLE PROCESS EFFORTLESS. I ALSO PURCHASED SOME CUSTOM BODY TEMPLATES FROM MIKE AND HIS COMMUNICATION AND WILLINGNESS TO CREATE WHAT I NEEDED WAS FANTASTIC. HE IS NOW MY "GO TO" FOR ALL MY TEMPLATE NEEDS. I WON'T BUY FROM ANYONE ELSE ! THANKS MIKE.
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!
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! :-)
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.
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.
Awesome cavity control template...saved me hours of layout time and an absolute flawless fit. Thanks Mike!
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
