Fret Scale Templates

Cut accurate fret slots either by hand or with your table saw.  Each Fret Scale Template includes two different scales with 24 frets.  The slots accommodate a 1/16" indexing pin (not included).  A standard 1/16" drill bit works perfectly! These 1/4" thick acrylic scales are 2-31/32" (75.5mm) wide. Ask about custom scale lengths.

    25/25.5” , 26.5/27” templates

    Both templates are amazing! I love how thick and durable they are also. I have a fret slotting miter box from Elmer Guitar, which is supposed to be made to the same sizes as the stewmac one. It fits perfectly with the indexing pin! Im glad I took the risk! If anyone has a fret miter box from Elmer no need to worry about the fit!

    Fret Scale Template

    Posted by Steve Davis on 2024 Apr 3rd

    This template came very well packed and protected, which is important for a precise tool. Speaking of precision, the template was very well made, and dimensionally perfect. I am recommending anything made by Potvin Guitars, as it will be made correctly and on time. Thanks, Mike !

    I needed a 27" Fret Scale Template for an upcoming baritone build. I had the template in less then a week. The quality is unmatched. It's going to help immensely.

    Great quality, and such a smart idea with two scales on one piece

    Fret scale baritone lengths

    Posted by Charles on 2022 Jul 26th

    Very high quality and was nice to find a baritone scale length that is 27" and 26.5". Best overall scale lengths for 7 string guitar builders. Also will fit the Stewmac miter box for fret slotting.

    Custom Fret Scale Template

    Posted by David Andries on 2022 Mar 22nd

    After playing a custom Alembic for 40 years I can now build a new custom boutique guitar with the same scale length. This worked perfectly setting the frets properly. I am very pleased with the investment.
