Pretty good template
By Kyle
This is a very precisely cut template. I was intending on installing Bart M5 pickups on my bass. As I was using the template (which is rather thick, being 1/2") it started flaking away slowly as I was routing. I was not left with a perfect cut, although the template started out perfect. I now have to make some custom pickup moldings to hide the blemishes that this template resulted in.

If I were to do it over, I would use the template one time (while still fresh) to route a new template made out of a harder wood, like Red Oak or something. I would then use that harder template to do my final routing on the body of the guitar.
