S-Style Template Set

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 one of the standalone control cavity sets 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.

Also available in in a Hardtail (non-trem) version

1/2" MDF with engraved center lines and reference markings.

Requires body blank minimum 18.5" x 13" (47cm x 33)
Requires neck blank minimum 26" x 4" (66cm x 10)

    '62 S-style Template Set

    Posted by Steve on 2019 May 30th

    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!
