The best templates out there

All of the templates I have gotten from MGW are just the best and very thought out.There is nothing else this good out there.

Great product!

These templates are amazing love them. The Router bushing is too snug for the template and too deep. However, only slight mods help the issues. Also the tape on the acrylic is impossible to remove.. just a few critiques but I’m so thankful these are available and they moved my neck skills to next level. Thanks Maximum!!! Great company I will be ordering more very soon!!

Truss Rod & Carbon Fiber Channel Set

Good templates but for the price there are two issues to be aware of. The routing channel on these call for a 5/8" outer diameter bushing. I've tried 3 different brand bushing guides (which were all accurate per my calipers) and the channel is too snug for a smooth moving router along the channel. This has the potential to be dangerous. The other major issue is the templates are .36" thick and too thin when placed directly on top of a neck (the whole point to the alignment pin system as far as I under stand it) because most all router bushing guides are taller than .36". The point here is the template requires a shim between the template and the router base or the bushing guide prevents the router base from sitting flush on the template. I mean these aren't deal breakers but things to be aware of. Makes them feel like not a finish product but a jumping off point to A: sand out the channels until the guide is smooth and B: to shim up the template so there's a flush surface. OR I guess one could grind down the bushing guide and leave it be as a dedicated tool for these templates. YMMV.
