’63 Phoenix-MGW ‘s 1st Neck Through Template Set

Imagine a world where your lightest guitar is a neck through homage to a 1963 Firebird. BLASPHEMY you say! We all know the Firebird is an oversized beast of a guitar known to devastate women and small children, not for the weak of heart or back. Yet here you are, throwing it over your shoulder like the lightweight Strat everyone covets. Is this a dream, an alternative reality, the Twilight Zone ? No, this lightweight masterpiece is the guitar you built using Maximum Guitar Works ‘63 Phoenix template set!

During the R&D of our first neck through body Template set, the mad scientist built the all maple with Wenge accents and fretboard. The weight? Prior to hardware and frets in weighed in at a svelte 5lbs 9oz! Need we say more?

Optional Add On Sets:

  • Drop top and weight relief set including Bigfoot router base
  • 7° or 14° Headstock angle and side profile templates
  • Standard tuner headstock 3 piece set

Templates are all made to order...please check the front page for lead times.

Absolutely the most comprehensive set of templates I've ever used !!!

This template set was essential in my Firebird build... I now have a custom-shop quality instrument that I build myself... this just simply would not have been possible without the template set from Maximum Guitar Works and Steve's attention to details. If you ever wanted a Firebird, but didn't want what was on offer from the big companies I say get this template set and build you own. I did, and you can too.
