Info1.png Template information here
This is a documentation subpage for Template:Speclist. It contains usage information, categories and other content that is not part of the original template page.

The Speclist template automatically creates a specifications table which can be used on guitar model pages. It is one of the four key elements of a complete guitar model page. For more information, see the Project guide.

This template has more than 20 named parameters, and that doesn't necessarily make it an easy template to use, but the main purpose is to create a uniform and clean look for the specifications lists which can be easily modified from one place.

Usage of the speclist template

First of all, for more global information on templates see Help:Template. This will also help anyone understand the following guide.

To include a speclist to a page using this template without using the Rich text editor (which is suggested), the following code should be inserted and filled out. This list includes the most used aspects/parameters:

{{speclist
 | name       = 
 | type       = 
 | series     = 
 | subseries  = 
 | subseries2 = 
 | year       = 
 | area       = 
 | made       = 
 | colors     = 
 | bodytype   = 
 | matbody    = 
 | matneck    = 
 | matfb      = 
 | nj         = 
 | neck       = 
 | scale      = 
 | frets      = 
 | fretsize   = 
 | matfret    = 
 | fretedge   = 
 | nut        = 
 | nutwidth   = 
 | bridge     = 
 | hw         = 
 | pucon      = 
 | puneck     = 
 | pumid      = 
 | pubridge   = 
 | control    = 
 | knobs      = 
 | switch     = 
 | battery    = 
 | output     = 
 | knob_color = 
 | inlay      = 
 | pg         = 
 | strings    = 
 | tuning     = 
 | tuners     = 
 | strap_btns = 
}}
Note: It's not necessary to use this exact list or order, other formats can and will be found around the wiki. Nevertheless it is probably the easiest.

Filling out parameters

Filling out parameters is as simple as typing something after the =. Every parameter corresponds to a certain cell in the table, so, for example, if you want RG550 to appear behind Name:, simply type RG5550 behind name= (this is the 'name' parameter). Below is a list of parameters and corresponding table labels.

Since there are a lot of guitar models already added and all of them are using this template, a certain 'style' is developed over the course of time. More info on that in the following table.

Parameter: Label: Style:
