    As the title says. I'm going to start carving out a new body soon, and I'd like to find a good jazz bass template set.

    To my understanding, the profile of a jazz bass has changed a bit over time. I love the curves of a jazz bass and am partial to the lines of vintage bodies the most.

    I'm hoping to find a true to vintage, quality template set. I'm looking to pair a Warmoth jazz neck up with this body.

    Do you guys recommend the Ron Kirn templates? Some of the edges look a little rough in these pics. Also, the ends of the pup routs look strangely round.
