    Potvin Thinline template kit

    Posted by Barry Haugen on 2024 Feb 22nd

    Based on a recommendation from a friend, he suggested I check out Mike’s template selection. Wow! The quality is top notch. I wish CNC technology would’ve been around in the 80s when I got my start. But what is better in my opinion than the template kit, it is Mike’s response time to questions. We live in an age of terrible customer service. Mike replied to my questions almost instantaneously. That is unheard of in this age that we live in. Good going Mike! Keep up the great work!

    T-style Thinline template set

    Have yet to use the complete template set but it seems to be accurately made and the contour definition is precise, with no dwell marks or undercuts visible from the machining process. I did a test cut and ensured that the neck template fits snug within the neck cavity that i machines using the template. Overall, I am happy with my purchase.

    quality templates

    Posted by Chris on 2020 Sep 6th

    I am getting into building guitar bodies, and heard great things about Mike's templates. Finally took the plunge and bought a couple. The '69 thinline set looks great. nice and crisp, centerlines and all. I can't wait to get started.

    The templates look to be made very well, I can’t wait to get out in the wood shed and put them to the test.
