Routing template Humbucker 7 string pick-up
Routing templates make life so much easier and help to get beautifully clean and sharp pickup cavities with a perfect fit. These cavities come with a center line to assist with correct positioning. The template is made of durable plexiglass of 5mm thickness and take little storage space. Collect 'm all!
Use a shallow router bit with a ball bearing guide on the upper part.
Measure your pickup position by using the center line, or angle line and set it securely in place with good quality double sided sticky tape. Don't overdo the tape as you still need to be able to get it loose.
Start with your router in the center of pickup position and move steadily to the edges of the template. It is better to remove material in steps and not too much in one time to avoid material chipping and your router getting too excited.
Stay away from the edges of the template till your router bit is deep enough for your copy ring to follow the sides of the template. Than follow the lines of the template and continue till you reached the required depth for your pickup, keeping in mind that you may require your pickup to move up or down for the optimal gain.
When your pickup cavity is finished, we recommend coating it at least twice with shielding paint before your final assembly. Shielding paint forms a barrier for any unwanted electronic interference.
