Can someone recommend a good place online or otherwise to get one? Wanting to shape my guitar after the rough cut. Looking for something about 2 1/4" - 2 3/4" long.

I think you might have a tough time finding a 2.75" cutting depth in a standard bit; you can always ride the bearing on the cut surface and work your way to the total cut depth you need.

I've got one of these (#45362) and it's a good, smooth cutting bit. The shear cut is a big plus.

Thanks for that!
Anyone have any suggestions for a good bit to rout out the tremelo, pickup cavities, control cavities and neck?
Also, what is a good one to round the edges of the body?
