You route things with a router. It is a tool with a rotating bit, similar to a drill, except it is designed to remove material laterally and vertically.

You use it to make cavities in things, like your control cavity, or the pickup cavities.

Routers can be affixed with many types of bits, some of which will round over edges, or decoratively carve them.

When replacing inlays, a smaller tool called a dremel is often used. You can attach a routing bit to it to remove material in small, delicate situations.

A router


Something which has been routed


EDIT:

A dremel with a router attachment, routing a piece of wood.




EDIT 2:

If you have the proper tools (even a chisel and skills will suffice), a single inlay repair, a swap for the same shape, will be easy. It is certainly cheaper and smarter than a whole new neck.

How much would you say it'd cost to get it professionally done?

For an inlay replacement?


I don't really know, ballparking like $70 I think.

EDIT: Yes, as chuck has said, professional luthiers will literally reach into your ass, come out your mouth, reach into your pocket, and take everything in it.

(They're overpriced, usually.)

Mr. Ryan, you have misinterpreted my post. Your interpretation does not make sense as you are not the one at stake of $70. Mr. Trevor(evortre) is buying the EMGs from my EC-1000 whenever it is that I purchase it, in order to fund my 59/JB combo.

Sincerely,
Charles.
