Accurate jigs for precise routing operations are crucial to high quality guitar making. I recently laid hands on two top-notch aluminum tools while visiting Chris Jenkins’ shop. The workmanship is the best machine shop fabrication you can imagine.

After carefully studying the finish and overall design, I thought it would be best to simply show pictures of these tools and give the website for further information.

Luthier Tool is a source for high quality production tools for guitar makers. The prices and details are available as well as a short video presentation for viewing.

This Triple Set tool will accommodate each style shown or you may buy an individual jig only. The drill guides are hardened tool steel inserts and will last a lifetime. I just don’t think you can make a mistake with precision jigs like these. They are not cheap, but wow!
