Easily the most nerve racking part of my hollowbody builds is routing the neck pocket. This is where hours of hard work spent getting to this point can be thrown away in a second should something go wrong. Since I build by hand without a pin router (or CNC), above is my funky jig for laying out the pocket. It is pretty much just two supports to hold / align the neck and a flat platform in which to support a plunge router over the body.
