    Still trying to locate the booklets that came with the templates.... :(

    I don't see how you accurately position the neck pocket template. Anyone?

    Thanks,
    Dave

    I believe there is a hole in the bridge screw locations which corresponds with the hole in the neck pocket template. However, you also need to keep an eye on the edge of the pocket which matches up with the high e string. You have to make sure it lines up so the neck won't overhang or underhang the body. But that nail will get you the proper distance to size the neck pocket.

    Ah yes, I see that now. Wasn't immediately obvious because the holes on my neck pocket template were frayed from the drill.

    Thanks!
