    These were far and above some of the best I’ve used. Affordable and very close tolerances. Get you some.

    T style template

    Posted by Matt Schiemann on 2024 Apr 21st

    I've purchased many templates from Mike and every one of them has been great. I've never had a problem with his products and I'm sure if I ever did his customer service would correct the issue.

    T Style template set

    Posted by Aaron on 2024 Jan 2nd

    I can’t imagine these being any better. Absolutely perfect. Reference lines for center line, jack cup and strap buttons are invaluable. This was my first build ever and the neck fit in perfectly with a light push and a satisfying squeak. Highly recommend and will be buying more sets.

    I've always wanted to build a guitar by hand. I don't remember how I found these templates, but for a beginner, they worked perfect for me. The templates are easy to use. If you have any woodworking skills it'll be straight forward. If not, it's easy to figure out. Thanks Mike.

    Excellent Tele Template

    Posted by Andre Glenn on 2022 Jan 2nd

    This template is spot-on for a Tele. It is cleanly cut. There are no uneven spots. My only "nice-to-have" would be for the center-lines to be carried over onto the sides. For my current build, I'm using a Mighty-Mite Fender-licensed Tele neck and the neck pocket cut using this template is perfect. Its not too tight, and its not too loose.
