Fret Slotting Templates
Making a new fretboard? These fret slotting templates cover the most common scale lengths for instruments such as bass, guitar, mandolin, banjo, and ukelele. These can be used in a fret cutting jigs such as the StewMac and LMII jigs.
Made from quality acrylic and laser-cut for accuracy we are able to deliver these at half the cost of the stainless steel equivalents meaning you can afford to buy as many as you need. We use them in our busy guitar making school workshop and they do the job well.
Custom scale lengths are available. If you have a special need for an unusual scale length, just ask and we'll cut a custom template for you. For example, we can provide a template for fretboards to fit a compensated nut. Select the item NT-Custom and tell us which scale lengths you require in the comments.
The following templates are available with 2 scales per selection. By selecting the appropriate code you will receive the two-scale lengths selected. We cut to order so allow 7 to 10 days for templates to be shipped.
