    FB templates

    Super chrisp lines, every template needed for a build compared to other templates online. (Control cavity, body routs, body sides/center and full headstock with edges and truss rod cover.) Even though the package had been manhandled and cardboard was smashed up, the templates had been nicely wrapped up in bubble wrap and arrived without a scratch. 10/10

    Once again, great template

    This my third full set template from Mike. Like the two others, this is a top quality product. When I need a template Potvin Guitars is my "go to, buy with confidence, no hesitation" place to go.

    Being well aware of MIke's superb craftsmanship as a guitar maker, I had no doubts that his templates would be the finest that money can buy, and he certainly did not let me down! I also appreciated the fast turnaround. These truly are the best templates on the planet, hands down! I look forward to getting some custom templates made now.

    He only makes amazing stuff

    I had ordered a couple templates from Potvin Guitars, and Mike has the best templates I've found. I had found another source for a FBird template, and was disappointed that what I had to work with, was 1/4" thick pressboard. Not Mike's... they are a sturdy 1/2" MDF. All of the template sets I've gotten have been of top notch quality. Don't go anywhere else for templates.... trust me, these are the best.

    Amazing Templates!!!!!

    Posted by Craig Clay on 2014 Dec 14th

    I ordered this set along with a Strat set and these are TOP NOTCH. I was stoked when I opened the box and looked at these templates. The tolerances are super tight. Was surprised what all was in the box and how well these go together. With these templates guitar making is super easy and Mike with his customer service is the best in the business. Is a super nice guy and answers all your questions super fast. I will be ordering from him again.

    This was one of the first template sets I bought from Potvin Guitars. It has everything you could ever need to build any configuration of Firebird. Stop shopping around and get yourself some right here at Potvin Guitars. Mike was extremely fast with shipping I got my set in about 3 days. And for the price I could afford to buy another set at the same time. Can't wait to use them.
