How To Build Guitars

Step 6: Routing the Pickup Cavity

The next step in this process is to make a template for the routing. What I did was trace my pickup onto a thin piece of wood. I then roughly traced around the outside of the pickguard a little bit bigger than the size of the pickup. I then took a very small router bit and routed out the drawing of the cavity. If this is not big enough, you should expand it as needed.
