I was wondering if someone has a suggestion for an easy material to work with to make a template for routing a jazz pick up? I had a quick go of it with plexi glass the other day and it is much more brittle than I anticipated. It will be a lot of work for a one time install. Can I use a peice of thin plywood if I am extra carefull when I route or am I just asking for trouble? I know I can order one,(a template), but this is a one shot deal. While I've got your attention; I am considering the slanted installation of said Jazz pup. Anyone use this? Slant the pup away from the bridge on the "G" string side? what degrees? What is your take on "not" finishing the neck joint so it is a wood to wood contact? Will it make any difference? Good idea or bad? Thanks a ton. I really appreciate you guys.
