eekitoonytooktash:

Welcome to the forum. I also build guitars (or at I am trying to, when I can get time).

You should check out the forum at TDPRI (Telecaster Discussion Page Re-Issue) at the Home Depot section. It is for electric guitar builders (mostly T-style, but others too). I have been making guitars and templates for router builds, and the pattern bits seem to be the ones of choice. I recently purchased a Whiteside 2" long solid carbide, fluted upcut pattern bit to smooth out the body and neck perimeters. You may also need a straight 1/4" diameter round nose bit for the truss rod grooves on necks. Really though check out TDPRI.com and search for router bits, and there will be quite a few threads. Good luck.

BTW: I used to have a pure bred Malamute, and I named her Kimutka Mikfa (my dog is beautiful in aleut).

Welcome aboard.

Guess I'm doing the banjo I'm making the hard way then. Not using bits, using a hand power belt sander.
