    LP template set

    Posted by Jon on 2023 Jul 1st

    Mike's LP template set has all of the necessary parts and markings that I needed to build several classic set necks accurately and efficiently. Well thought out and easy to use with a little experience !! I have gotten a bunch of Mike's template sets, they are consistently high quantity and accurate.

    Great Product, Better service. 5 stars because I can't give 6.

    As a first time luthier with limited tools and space, these templates were a life-saver. Everything was accurate, clean, and easy to use. On top of that, Mike was personable and easy to get in contact with. When I had some questions or needed some advice, he was quick to help (even when I didn't really know what I was talking about).

    My first LP turned out great thanks to this set combined with the carving templates and the binding jig. The 1/2 inch MDF is great to work with and the accuracy is outstanding.
