Updated v2 set now available! The streamlined process is now easier than ever.
Most Floyd Rose routing templates are gernously over-sized which results in a large un-attractive gap. This template set has a tighter recess perimeter and leaves more wood around the Floyd posts; a way better design and a cleaner look. The set comes with full instructions and will accommodate Original Floyd Rose 6 string trems as well as Gotoh and Schaller.
3/4" MDF with engraved center lines and reference markings.

Right away was impressed with the quality and attention to detail. The center lines are as close to perfect as I could ask for and everything lines up with the other templates I'm using ('62 S-style template set). The templates are heavy-duty and CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN. They are cut flawlessly. Tolerances are spot on! Good to know that they will last a long time as well.
(Side note: was a little unsure about having to pay for FedEx Ground delivery but my templates arrived WITHOUT any damage whatsoever. Packaged well to ensure no damage during delivery.)
Very accurate template. Easy to use. Great online instructions, and a happy customer. Shipping to France was pretty fast and Mike was a pleasure to deal with. I will definitely be dealing with Potvin Guitars again. Many thanks. Steve. SRB-Guitars Normandy France.
Instructions are a little wierd at first reading, also being my 1st Floyd job, but make sense when making cuts. Only improvement I'd make is centering lines being carved down the side of template as well as the top so you dont have to eyeball the alignment, fix that and it's a 5 star id even say 10 star
A DEFINITE MUST FOR ACCURATE AND EASY FLOYD ROSE ROUTING. NICE THICK TEMPLATES WITH INSTRUCTIONS MAKING THE WHOLE PROCESS EFFORTLESS. i ALSO PURCHASED SOME CUSTOM BODY TEMPLATES AND MIKE'S COMMUNICATION AND WILLINGNESS TO GIVE ME WHAT I NEEDED WAS FANTASTIC. HE IS NOW MY "GO TO" FOR ALL MY TEMPLATE NEEDS.
First let me state that I've had several floyd sets over the past few years. The trend these days is laser cutting them out of 1/4" hardboard or MDF. Most have failed after a few uses, or in some cases were not even accurate.
These templates are the 4x4 offroad version of templates. Thick, accurate, and easy to use. Literally can't say enough about these. Don't waste your money on laser cut anything.
There's not much I can say. Excellent templates and an excellent Service. Mike's a very nice guy who fulfills every wish.
I come from Switzerland and the shipping Service was excellent as well.
These revised versions of the Floyd rout are amazing. The fit and finish are far superior to any other templates on the market, not to mention you can rout right away because there is enough thickeness to these templates unlike the crooked fiber board junk I've seen from other template suppliers. Also the best customer service ever, Mike is a top notch guy and I'll continue to get my templates from him.
a MUCH more effective route of the Floyd pocket with these templates - if your doing ANY Floyd install at all - these are a MUST Have !!
Like many of you, I have fought and clawed my way through many dollars and full trash cans-worth of crummy templates.
These ARE NOT those templates. With a perfect fit, and fantastic instructions to go along with them, they made for the cleanest, easiest FR route I have ever done. Well worth the money at TWICE the price.
