    Hey guys... I know places like stewmac sell pickup mounting rings for the tele neck pickup, but I have a bunch of pickguard material sitting around and I wanted to just cut my own. Just wondering if anyone has a template for a ring like that?

    Thanks so much.

    ...i do them 'free hand'..trace out the pickup cutout using a pre-existing tele pickguard, once you have that shape, then free hand around the cutout shape with a marker that you can erase..I use a very small drill to trace out the outside/inside dimensions, then use a dremel to clean up...if you are careful, it will come out quite nicely...
