I know I havent checked in for a while but I'd love to get a Gibby Nighthawk template. Bolt or set neck either one would be fine, with optional pup routes. Any luck on that?


To be honest, I haven't added anything new win a while because I've been swamped just keeping up with what's available now and building guitars. I'm close to wrapping up some shop improvements that will let me get things done faster, and that's when I'll start adding new sets again. I have a looooong request list to work through!

Yeah, I kinda figured. Didn't hurt to ask. I still may go with something else instead. That bird template looks awful tempting. Very Happy

I managed to squeeze in some new items! In a nutshell, Mashups are hybrid templates. Think of them as mix n' match (or a la carte for us French speaking fancy pants) parts. The cool thing about these is that if you've bought any other bolt-on templates from me, you already have some re-usable parts (neck, neck pocket, etc). The companion parts are also available separately so you can slowly build up a library of re-usable templates.

All Mashups are 25-1/2" scale bolt on necks. These are a few examples, but if you need something else (different pickups, body shapes, etc) just let me know.

I'll be sending out a discount code for any of the mashup body / pickguard sets to my email subscribers. If you're interested, the subscribe link is in my sig.

This was another request (I really am working through the list!). The paddle style headstock is big enough to shape into most of the popular "pointy" styles, although I kind of like the Potvin Shreddy Meat Cleaver (tm) Wink

I'm waaay behind on posting new stuff and I've actually made a really good dent in the request list! Here goes:

Someone wanted to be able to use the standard 25.5" scale 24 fret RG7 set to build a 27" scale. It required adding a 25th fret but, yeah, I can do that Razz

For the pointy fans I added a couple of new sets. I called it the "AV" but you know, if Captain America or any of the other AVENGERs wanted a guitar, this might be the one Wink The neck-through was a request, but I also created a bolt on because neck-through is not for everyone.

Another request that I thought was kind of cool, a DG version of a 335. I also created the diamond f-hole as a standalone template in case you already have the ES set.

This one has been a loooong time coming! I've also added stand-along templates for the neck, neck pocket, and a few types of bass bridges. If you need any other bridge style just let me know.

These are for routing neck angles in neck pockets or on neck heels. I have two different flavours (flat top or carved top). If they don't make sense, pop over to the website where there's another pic showing one way to use them
