“Dear Sir, A few months ago I placed my first order with you and built my very first guitar. Ovangkol back and sides with sitka top. I have been a craftsman for a number of years, rebuilding antique pianos, including making new soundboards and bridges, and decided to try my hand at guitars after buying a Taylor 814ce. The results of my first attempt were surprising, to me and to others. Since I'm a bit "old-school" I built it entirey by hand, no table saw, router, joiner etc. (I did use a driss press!). I have already received requests for custom made guitars, and from a store interested in selling them. It really helped to find quality supplies, all in one place, so I could start this experiment - which may just turn out to be my next and final career. Many Thanks. ps. I have just placed a second order so I can start making a few more......”
Our polycarbonate templates are resistant to breakage, unlike cheaper acrylic versions, and are CNC milled to tolerances of .002"—accuracy is guaranteed! Designed to work with either of our fret slotting systems, power or manual. Note that each template has two scales and has at least twenty-four frets (most have more than thirty slots), and they can be used for other scales you might wish to generate.
These templates measure 31.5" long x 3.5" wide x .220" thick, except the SPFS6 and SPFS18 which are 15.5" long.
