Need a no pickguard Ibanez rg routing template

Recommended Posts

You will probably need separate templates, humbucker and FL routing templates aren't expensive though. I would suggest get your body shaped and neck pocket done then determine your scale length/bridge position once you're neck is dry fitted, then you can work out where on the centre line your FL and pickup routes will go. That's generally how I build all my guitars. A lot of the all in one templates are close but not always perfectly accurate anyway so you shouldn't rely on the nut line or the bridge line on a set of prefab templates being gospel. 

There are also several universal style control cavity templates around you could use or just make a template to fit your control layout. I often just drill my pot/switch holes from the top all the way through, then position the control cavity routing template in a spot that works with the holes I've drilled.
