Fret scale template

Product Description

Heavy duty 2mm stainless steel template with 2 popular scale lengths - 25 1/2 inch (Fender) and 24 3/4inch (Gibson). 24 frets plus zero fret (2 full octaves).

Other manufacturers give you one of the popular scales and then another one which nobody really wants..forcing you to buy another one if you want both scales! With this template you get two really useful scale lengths at a great price. For custom shorter scale lengths, you can just miss out the first one or two fret slots. These templates are laser cut to a super-high level of accuracy on state of the art machinery, and we offer these at an unbeatable price. Please note  that these are cut from unpolished mill-finished steel and some handling marks and surface scratches may be present, but in no way affect the performance of the product.

Supplied with 2mm index pin and 2mm HSS drill. Suitable for use with a simple mitre box or with a table saw fitted with an appropriate blade. This makes slotting fretboards super-accurate every time - use it with our Sheffield steel luthier's fretting saw for perfect results.

For use with a mitre box: install the index pin in the side of the mitre box just to one side of the saw slot (or alternatively in the bottom of your mitre box). Then simply attach the template to the back of the fingerboard with double sided tape, and saw each fret slot after locating the index pin (preinstalled in the mitre box) in the corresponding template notch.

On your table saw, you'll need to make a sliding "sled" to carry the fretboard. Install the index pin in the side of the fence. Align the blade perpendicular to the fingerboard, stick the template to the back of the fretboard with double sided tape and saw the slots with the template side up.
