First, I drew up a template.

Then, I cut the template out with a jigsaw:

Before routing, I did a trial run on some other wood:

Dry fit after routing:

The masking tape tore up pretty bad during routing. That's why the shape's off, but it works great:

Nice job.
Interesting touch to the Squire.
I’ve been thinking about doing that myself.

I haven't seen many bass trems before, but now I think it should be standard after seeing this one! Nice work.
Do you like listening to homemade music? Me too. Why don't you try one of mine?

If they were, nobody would buy Daddario or Ernie Ball strings. Ever. :omg:
