Drill guide

I made a simple drill guide to accurately drill two rows of holes for pickup pole piece set screws. A 1/8"x1" aluminum strip serves as the guide, screwed to a piece of particle board through 1/8" maple risers. I cut 1/8" maple into six spacers for the distance between strings, and one spacer for the distance between pickup coils. The aluminum guide keeps the drill bit from wandering, so I can drill each hole in succession, removing spacers as needed, to create 14 perfectly spaced holes for a 7-string humbucker.
