  • Pickgaurd Template?

    Does anyone know where I can get a full sized 1/2" thick template for a HSS strat pickgaurd?

    Try
    www.pickguards.com
    www.warmoth.com
    www.stewmac.com

    I've seen templates somewhere that you can download, just can't remember exactly where. Those are the sites I most often go to for parts and such.

      without sounding like a jerk, here's what i'd recommend doing
      if you have a router/table which i assume you do since you asked for the template

      1) buy pickguard in desired shape
      2) rough cut template material of your choice - i alwasy like plexi, but some people like mdf or steel
      3) double sided tape rough cut to real pickguard, router away

      hope that helps

        I was thinking about doing this but then I thought I might butcher the pickgaurd and end up with a flawed template...

          if you get a flush trim bit - i.e. if you have a router table the bit sticks out of hte table and there is a bearing at the top
          there is also a little gap between the bearing and the cutter
          therefore you can run the bearing along the pickgaur and salvage the pickgaurd
          but definitely cut to shape first and drill the pickup holes to make routing easier
