Man that sure seems like something guitar builders all over could use! Is this available on the open market?

I actually haven't looked, John.  It would be easy to make them available, for sure!

Boy, sure seems like one of those specialty templates for the luthier industry that builders would love to have, especially if you can label it as template for a specific model guitar, but that would mean you'd have to measure a lot of guitar necks to make your specialty templates.

Just seems like something you'd find in StewMac catalog for builders.
