Westone X390 Pantera CB - Tribute Guitar Build - Making the Templates by hand. (Template Tutorial)

Making the templates for the Westone X390 Pantera CB tribute Guitar Build.
The second video in the guitar building series where I'm building a Westone X390 Pantera inspired guitar.
In this episode I show and explain how I design and make the body and neck templates for this guitar by hand.

This video turned into a very detailed tutorial on how to make guitar temples by hand using a couple of very basic tools.
