    I ordered an LP template set from them. The quality is really nice, but he was horrible with communication and shipping. I placed an order, and it was taking awhile to get shipped, so I did as his website instructed and sent him an email. I didn't hear back, so I sent him another one. I still didn't hear back, so I opened a dispute in PayPal. My order was shipped the next day.

    I’m having the same problem. A bunch of promises about shipment but nothing yet.

    If you paid via PayPal, open a dispute. Apparently that's enough to get his butt in gear to get things done.

    It may not be too late to do a charge-back on your card. Definitely check into it.

    I've had great luck with Potvin guitar templates. If he doesn't have a particular design, he will sometimes make it for you.

    If people are buying templates to make a guitar that would suggest if such people can make a guitar they can make a template right ?
    A google search will find most templates in PDF format all you need is a printer some A4 paper and some sticky tape to tape the sections up also a little bit of research on the specs of what you are building helps to refine your template
    but yeah i can also understand people don't want to be bothered with that i go to fast food places when i can't be arsed cooking

    As a hobbyist builder I will gladly pay for basic templates rather than machine MDF.

    MDF is no fun. And CNC and Laser cutters make templates accessible for most builders.

    I hear you. It is a good learning experience though and to me I get to know much more about the build.

    I agree with those advocating making your own templates. It's not too hard, and you can introduce improvements to the templates as you go. It's easier to do this if you have a bandsaw and a pillar drill with a sanding drum table, but then you will probably want both of these tools for building the actual guitar.

    Potvin guitars in Ottawa.
    Mike is a great guy and builds some seriously cool stuff.

    Lewis guitars on reverb.
    He is also a great guy & excellent to deal with.

    I am fully capable of making my own templates but I buy them.
    It’s quicker, easier and more accurate (especially for things like p90 routes that are a pain in the butt to do by hand).

    I have built several templates of my own custom designed guitars. I was looking for a Gibson firebird neck through and it was just easier to purchase than build it at this time. It finally came in the other day almost a month later. The quality is great but shipping times are super slow just be prepared to wait a while.

    I would also look at Javelina. They are available on both Reverb and Ebay.
