The drawing shows the body, pickguard and neck of a 1953 Tele in 1:1 scale. A scale table is used to position the frets, at the top right of the drawing. In the lower area both an original ’53 wiring and a today’s standard wiring for Tele are shown. The depths of the millings in the body are given on the drawing. The drawing can be used to make templates or simply to measure the original dimensions. To make it easier to create routing templates, the headstock, neck radii, neck pocket, pickup routing and electronics compartment were drawn separately.

The routing templates that match this drawing can be ordered in the “Templates” area. Either as a professional A0 laser print on a scale of 1:1 or as a digital download (PDF) to print out yourself.
