    This is my second template from Mike. They have been a huge time saver, incredibly well done and have everything you need. Mike is also very responsive if you have any questions. If you are contemplating, wait no more!

    Just recently received my bolt on template. Not only was it better than all of the other templates i saw but also more affordable. They showed up at my front door in perfect condition. I will be purchasing all of my templates from MR. Mike Potvin from now on.

    These templates not only saved me over 8 hours of template making. These are perfect. I could not have made them this precise. Although this was a bolt on set I used it for a thru neck. My 1st of many Phoenix guitars came out beautiful. I totally recommend any of these templates as they will make your guitar building better. Thanks Mike!

    Nicest Template Set I've ever seen!

    Posted by David Whitson on 2014 Dec 13th

    The thing that really stands out with this template set is the astounding attention to detail. Everything is absolutely perfect & flawless. Icing on the cake is the scribed center line. It makes layout go so smooth. The way this set is built you have many options for the body - 1 piece or 3 piece flat or 3 piece stepped like the original. Head stock options for the neck too. Even works with a typical fender strat type neck if you have one of those kicking around. Pick guard template, control cavity cover template, trussrod cavity cover complete. Wow. Thanks Mike! Great job and a great deal. I've got my eye on a couple more sets of yours.
