    I have a guitar with a non-standard size control cavity, and I'd like to make a cover for it. Any suggestions on how to use the cavity to make a template? Or is there a better way than using the cavity?

    I'd probably just use a piece of paper and run my fingernail around the perimeter on the guitar cutout to mark/crease it. Then cut with scissors and gradually cut to perfect it.
