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.

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.
Mike's custom work was ON POINT. Nothing more I could have asked for!
Excellent S-Style Template Set ('62 Style). Nicely crafted templates.
I ordered a couple templates from Mike, and they ALL are awesome. Order with confidence.... you will not be disappointed. I had found templates from another source before, and Potvin's are significantly better. These are workable templates, being that they are 1/2" thick, versus other's who sell 1/4" material, often leaving you forced to make another set of templates for various procedures.
Bottom line, search no more.... if you need templates get them here.
By far the best templates I've ever used. I would recommend these templates to anyone looking to build a '62 Strat style guitar. The service is fantastic!
These are spot on and stellar templates. Perfect for all levels of builders.
Have to say this was an excellent choice... Mike has been nothing short of amazing in responsiveness to questions, and delivery of a quality product. 3 in progress now... and surely I'll be using these more. each piece ensures perfect alignment with the others. Great stuff Mike!
