*These discounted pre-wired pickguards have wires that are too short and won't be long enough to be run through standard S/S/S pickup routs.
Classic 70's strat- Black hardware on a White guard- Three staggered single coils- How frickin' sexy is this???
These sound soooo good for the dough- Not all wired pickguards are created the same. I have my high end- USA sized White/Black/White pickguards CUSTOM wired. This is NOT a pickguard unit pulled from a low-end Saga kit, or removed from a cheap Chinese strat® copy. Take a good look at some of the other wired guards on Ebay-low-end...What's sexier on a white, black or sunburst strat® than a White pickguard with Black knobs and pickup covers!!! Hey- the other guys are getting $35 for the PICKGUARD ALONE- Plus $20 for the Black hardware- forget about the pickups, pots, switch and the pre-wiring!
This is a great opportunity to grab one of these for what the big guitar makers pay- A similar Pickguard/Pickup/Pot/Switch/Knob setup is supplied to a "Very Famous" manufacturer, and I buy mine from the same source in stupid quantities. Heck- to load one of these up for yourself you'd be in for well over $75 PLUS all that tedious soldering!
The pickups are nice, full ceramic bar magnet units with staggered pole pieces. It's got a real 5-way switch, smooth audio taper pots and the full compliment of knobs and switch tip. This is a standard 11-hole strat® style pickguard, and should be a good fit for most real strat® guitars. On some imports you might find a few holes off a bit- but After 25 years of fitting pickguards I can tell you- nearly every guitar needs a little bit of fitting work,
I've installed like a million of these in kit guitars, as replacement for cheapo pickup combos on imports, and even in real fender® guitars with dead pickups. A great looking, great sounding rig ready for just that little touch of solder to get rocking!
Remember- 3 ply- White/Black/White- not cheapo single ply black. Last time I checked the big catalogs were getting $79 for a similar unit.
