Can anyone point me towards any video of the Tele neck cavity routing.
I'm not aware of a video but this thread will show you how to make a neck pocket template. This technique can also be used to rout the pocket directly without a template.
** Making A Neck Pocket Template **
Routing is routing. The tele neck cavity is a tapered rectangle that is nominally 5/8 "deep with the end corners by the neck cavity having a 1/4" radius. That means use a 1/2" diameter pattern routing bit. You can remove the bulk of the waste on a drill press with a forstner bit and just use the template to clean it up and look professional. Any video that shows routing a guitar cavity would utilize the same techniques whether is be control cavity, pickup cavities, or neck cavity.

Thanks for those, very helpful. Terrified of the router, tends to get away.
Monkeyking, that one is perfect because he uses the template i have borrowed but didn't really know how to use. i can see i hold it down with double-sided tape. Thanks so much!!
Nice video series! Very educational.
