    anyone know where I can get them? I was gonna call Warmoth, cuz I know they sell the tremelo's and might have them, but they're probly expensive (this might be the only time I put this tremelo in a bass). Thought I'd ask around here and see if anybody already has the templates and would be willing to use them to make me some templates. I'd pay ya, of course.

    There are templates that you can print off of the website. I'd print them, make MDF templates out of those plans, and then carry on.

    Or, if you wanted a Kahler tremolo, they're being manufactured again and will be available in April (so says the website). Only one cavity needs to be routed, and it doesn't go through the entire body. I do not know if templates will be available with the tremolo, but I do have the installation guide.
