Floyd Route On A Finished Body

Recommended Posts

I am attempting to router out the bridge for a Floyd Rose. I'm going to do it on a Fender Strat Style body that is already finished. I'm concerned that when I do it I will not a get a clean cut and I will leave a jagged edge or crack the paint.

I thought that if before I router, I should score the edge of the route with a knife (right along the edge of the template), that it might prevent the paint from chipping on the edge.

Any suggestions/comments?
