why not a router? i mean you could use forstner bits and chisels but its much easier just to route it.

I'm too poor to afford a router so I used really ****ty methods to rout a pickup hole. Basically I drilled a bunch of big holes then used a screwdriver to hack it up enough to gouge out the rest with a flathead. It's a good thing that **** is covered up by the pickguard, it's embarrassing.

you have access to that? you could drill holes with forstner bits to remove the bulk and then chisel the outline.

+1 to the drill press and chisels idea, that's what I'm doing on my guitar (although I have access to a router, my woodshop teacher won't let me use it for some strange reason...)

A dremel can also be used for routing. Its time consuming though. Its advised you use an extension (they're about $30) to give you more control and reach.

Whoooa! Not how you do it!

If your planning on building a guitar, you're really going to need to have more knowledge than to not know that you drill out the cavity with drill bits, then chisel it to a clean amount.

Read up on woodworking techniques, tools and probably take a woodwork class at school.
