The RG 6 string template set (24 fret, 25.5" scale length) is available with several popular humbucker pickup options including DiMarzio, Bare Knuckle and Seymour Duncan. Choose from either Hipshot or Floyd Rose (posts only) bridge options. The headstock can be used as-is but is large enough to cut many popular "pointy" styles. The headstock is provided as a separate piece so you can create reverse or standard headstock orientations.
** Also availble: Add-on 6 String / 27" Neck Conversion Kit
This set is also available in a 7 String Version.
1/2" MDF with engraved center lines and reference markings.
Requires body blank minimum 19" x 13" (48cm x 33)

I got this template set for my first guitar build. Mike was very helpful, answering (very quickly) any questions I had.
The templates are top quality, everything fits perfectly, and the shipping was very fast.
The handwritten note and guitar picks were a nice touch :)
I'll definitely be ordering from Mike again for my next build!
I spoke to Mike about his 7 string set, and the idea of making a 6 string set of his RG templates came up, and I decided to go for it. So mine were the first made! Mike was excellent to speak to through the whole process, very patient, and was a pleasure to order from.
The templates themselves are really well done. Clean edges, neck pocket is straight, and snug, clean edges all around, and everything is drilled/cut where it should be! The options available to have your set tailored to the build you have in mind (bridge type, pickup type) are convenient as well as it takes out any guess work in that regard.
I'll have to pick up a 7 string set and the baritone sets sometime soon. Cannot recommend Potvin guitars enough!
