so i used some of my christmas cash to buy a 1 3/4 horsepower router that i'm going to use for guitar building obviously i've got a few sheets of acrylic that i'm going to use to make some templates for things like neck pockets and pickup cavities. i also got a pack of 7 bits (1/4", 3/8", 1/8" roundover, 1/2" dovetail, 1/2" corebox, 1/2" flush trim, and a 90* V-Groove). what tips, tricks and techniques have you guys developed over the years that help make smooth shapes and cuts? how do you use your templates or guide lines? free hand tracing the shapes? what's your over all procedure for routing? and what about necks? how would you use a router for a neck?
