Sorry if this has already been asked, but are all of these templates, including the carve templates, designed to be used with flush trim bits (as opposed to using a bushing screwed into the router base plate)?

As always, thank you very much for your generosity of time and talent!
Yes, flush trim bits (or a pin router).

That's the tricky part with vintage instruments. You have to realize these guitars are 60 years old. You cannot expect to have parts from a newer guitar and have it match. Frankly some guitars made in the same year may have had different sized plastics. There are some standardized suppliers out there but even those may not fit on every vintage guitar.

Cheers Peter.
