Nothing sexier than a white Mother of Pearl Strat® pickguard with a matching white humbucker in the lead position- don't you think?
The classic Humbucker/Single/Single setup. This will fit every Strat®-style guitar ever made- though on some vintage type guitars you'll need to rout out the humbucker space. Don't fear though- most modern guitars have the famed "Swimming Pool" rout- just pop it in!
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. A good high-end completely wired pickguard rig. Ever try to buy a pickguard, two single coil Strat® pickups, switch, pot, cap, wire, knobs, a good loud humbucker, then wire the whole thing up? After spending $135 on the individual pieces you're still left messing around with your soldering iron. Here's a great way to rock- right now!
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. 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. The lead humbucker is a fat, wax-potted high end lead pickup. Really a killer sounding assembly!
This is a standard 11-hole Strat® style pickguard, and should be a close fit for most real Strat® guitars. On most imports and many USA guitars you might find a few holes off a bit- but don't worry. 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! The greatest Squier upgrade known to man!
Remember- Gorgeous Pearl White Pickguard- It looks three feet deep!- not a cheapo single ply white. Last time I checked the big catalogs were getting $129 for a similar unit.
As with all of my items, this is a brand new, factory fresh unit. I DO NOT disassemble guitars, pawn off used parts as new, or sell parts from the big catalog distributors.
