Building My Electric Guitar - Routing The Pickup Cavities

 

 

With a pattern cutting router bit, I routed out the pickup cavity to a depth of 1/2 inch. In doing so I needed to account for the depth of the tamplate as well.

Its important to run the router in the proper direction of the pickup template. Since this is known as an inner cutout, and most routers spin the bit in a clockwise direction, you will need to move the router in a clockwise rotation when routing the pickup cavity.
