The classic '62 S-Style Template set is available in a variety of configurations. Choose from top routed (the "normal" S-Style with a pickguard), or back routed (no pickguard). For the back route version you'll want to also add the control cavity set to your order. Once you've chosen top or back route, you can choose from a few pickup options. A standard S-Style would be SSS, but you can also choose HSS (humbucker in the bridge position) or HSH.

Once again was immediately impressed with the overall quality and attention to detail. Well worth the wait and definitely worth every penny. I've heard others say that these templates are a little pricier than others on the web, but you truly get what you pay for. They are durable, clean cut, and look nice too (professional quality). Incredibly accurate center lines and dimensions and lines up perfectly with the Floyd Rose template I have (also bought from Potvin). The nut width is BANG-ON at 1-11/16". I bought the rear-routed (no pick guard) with the H-S-H configuration and highly recommend it. If my first build works out okay and I decide I want to try and build more guitars I'll likely come back for the pick guard version with different pick up configurations. These will last a long time I'm sure and I'll be back for more!
Haven’t started my build yet but can’t wait ! Template looks precise and well made . Probably order tele next !!
After looking at templates for years I finally pulled the trigger!
Nicely cut,centrelined and other useful marks.
Very good templates!
Excellent customer service too!
These templates are really the best i've seen!
Firstly, you get a solid THICK half inch MDF board (instead of those thin flimsy ones)
also, each corner and joint is cut to great precision and fit! No gaps due to laser burn marks or sloppy cutting.
They may be more expensive than others all over the net, but it's worthwhile getting good quality master templates for better quality guitars to come.
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.
Mike Potvin's templates are of the best quality. When I received and opened the package containing my template order, I was instantly amazed at the precision and quality that Mike Potvin puts in his work. My hat's off to you Mike! Great stuff!
I've bought many templates thru the years and I've even made my own...mainly due to what was available at the time...not so good. Mikes templates are superior to all of them. Great thickness, proper fit and good center lines. I will use them to make more templates for regular use.....(don't want to mess these ones up). I'll be back for sure.
After ordering my templates, I shot Mike a message about the tremolo spacing I wanted to use with my build. He modified it to that spacing at no extra charge. Mike is super nice to his customers and has the best customer service! Best templates on the market by a long shot. Thanks Mike!
I purchased templates from Mike as I had read good things about them and can confirm that they are indeed very well made templates. I have bought templates from another source some time ago and they are ok but not close to the quality of Mikes. Nice 1/2 inch thick material with centre lines engraved. Very nice !!
If your are from another country (I am from Australia) it may take a while for the templates to arrive but be patient because it is well worth the wait.
