I bought templates from StewMac for the pickups and the control cavity. I also bought from them the luthier router bits, they are only 1/2" blade area top bearing bits as opposed to the 1" bits I can find at other sources. So its routing time.

I finally got back to this project and finished it today. The delay was do to an unhappy router accident where the neck template slipped and I put a large gouge in the side of the neck pocket. So I put the body away for a while until I figured out what to do about it. I came across the body a couple of weeks ago and while looking at it I got an inspiration. I can route the damage area out and fill it with an accent hardwood. I got to work and this is what I came up with. It sounds and plays great. I can't say enough how much I love the pickup combination and I finally have what I've always wanted. A Fender necked les Paul. I call it the Maraudercaster. It really is my dream guitar come to life. I feel like a lot of myself is in this guitar. I made almost every mistake you could make along the way and learned a whole bunch.
