When making an acoustic guitar, it is customary to build the top and back with curvature to enhance the strength and stiffness of the plates. The amount of curvature is a personal preference of the builder/designer. Guitar Templates offer top and back curvature templates in 4 standard metric radii and four standard imperial radii. These templates may be used to check the actual curvature of a surface or as an aid to shaping braces or making jigs.
These 3mm thick clear acrylic templates are 400mm long and 50mm wide and are cut concave on one side and convex on the other. They have convenient vertical and horizontal cross-hairs for easy alignment.
If you are looking for a different radius or a routing template (we recommend 6mm thick for routing) get in touch and we'll do a custom template for you.
