Answer: 
Edge guides are available as an accessory. I do not know the cost as I never use one. I use a router table and fence as an edge guide.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by good router Powerful, sturdy. I love his trigger in the handle, also has a led light to see what you're doing with detail. At least mine is made in Japan. May 31, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Powerful machine. It came without the 1/4 inch collet, spanner wrench, or owners manual. Those are supposed to be coming in the mail. It has lots if power and runs smoothly. Still loud, but better than some. Worth the price. March 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Makita Plunge Router I like the weight. It aids in stability. The handles and trigger feel good and the trigger lock works well. Plenty of power. I like the automatic spindle brake too. January 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by solid machine This router is a solid machine. At full plunge there is little vibration while cutting laterally. Lots of power. August 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Makita router I have a older one and love it. The only difference is ,the power switch is on the handle which I don't like , as the older one is not!!! That's just my preference. Great router though!!! I would buy it again. March 25, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Router, but not as pictured. This is a top notch router. However, be warned that the straight edge guide as shown in the picture is not included in the box. The manual does not identify it as an optional accessory like other accessories. Seems a bit misleading... December 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great router I have the router mounted in a table and use it to make raised panel doors. It is smooth and strong and leaves a great surface when used with sharp bits. Two passes on a raised panel leaves me a clean edge. The variable speed is great and the router is a lot quieter than my 1 1/2 hp router. December 10, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love this thing!!!! What can I say? This makita router is powerfull and well built. I believe that it may have been the most expensive they offer. A bit pricey, but as the old expression goes "you get what you pay for". Well worth every dollar! December 4, 2012
