    Now, that is brilliant! :)

    Mind if I borrow that idea in the future?
  5. Another steal-er here :)

    I wonder how it goes when you go through the slope with the router, is it dangerous?

    Totally going to steal this.

    ...if I can figure it out..


    Did you scarf the template or is it one piece?
  7. I think I can actually see the line of the scarf joint on the headstock aroudn the tuners on the nut-side.

    Great idea! Actually, when re-thinking my template strategy yesterday night I thought about an angled neck and headstock template like this, to minify the number of steps and amount of work... really.. but I see I missed the genius point here: I didn't think of such a truss rod slot insert..

    great idea!!

    Good idea for a template, mods should move to sticky.

    Thanks everyone. Been contemplating this one for a long time, glad to have extracted it from my brain. I'll be making similar templates for routing bodies.

    P. S. In case you don't already know, route slowly.
