I need some help cutting out the place for my left handed tremolo. What can I use to outline the places that I need to cut out on my guitar? I don't want to use something that would leave a permanent mark. What do I use to cut the guitar without the paint cracking or the wood splintering?

This is for the SRV guitar right? Cause that is what Steve did.

Chalk? Thats what I use.
Let the pretend take over
And that season be the first
Shadows we're in become us
So we set up interspersed
Between here and away
Become your space every day

first make a router jig with some scrap wood. then apply blue painter's tape over the area to be routed. next attach the jig to the body with either clamps or screws. then rout it and remove. the painter's tape will keep the wood from splintering.
