MGW  Fret Slotting Templates

We have put together a selection of fret slotting templates that have something no others have...Auto Alignment and indexing the fretboard to the guitar neck. These fret slotting templates are compatible with all of our neck and fretboard indexing pin systems. 

  • No more squaring up the edges of the fretboard blank. 
  • No more worrying about the fretboard sliding out of place while gluing to the neck. 
  • No more hoping that you have cut the fret slots perpendicular to the neck. 
  • No more uncertainty about if the fret slots will be exactly in the the correct scale position for proper intonation.

The secret is in the precision placed hardened steel drilling bushings that insure perfect alignment every time.  Watch the video to see how the system can work for you. Just like the rest of our top quality templates, they are made order. Please see the front page for lead times.

A great addition to your MGW templates!

The way that this automatically registers the fingerboard with the neck and eliminates any possibility for scale length error is in one word , amazing!!
