I will be building a new body for my RG7321 and I need some pointers on how to do the neck pocket routing, as it's the only thing I don't have a template for. Does anyone know where I can get a template for the neck pocket? Or could I just make one? If so, how?
I think you could make one from a piece of hardware store acrylic sheet. I make pickguard from it that are a fairly close fit around the neck. Use the neck to mark the outline onto the acrylic, and then cut it out. I do it in slow stages by cut and try, suing a file for the last bit..
Just make one out of MDF. That is how i do all of my templates.
I usually just freehand the routing (so no templates), you just have to be careful and take your time
