Looks of quality build but two areas make this product just another badly fitted guard that you'd find online. The volume knob (standard Strat setup) is wedged against the bridge pickup mounting screw head so it no longer operates smoothly. The guard is cut slightly too large and becomes wedged between the neck heel and bridge so the tremolo gets impeded like a tennis ball under a gas pedal.
i had to trim it down from the neck because it was so tight, it was pursing up from my american strat. then the screw holes in the pickguard didn't match up and i had to screw a hole in the guitar because they had a hole in the pickguard which was NOWHERE NEAR any other hole. i spent an extra hour making this work. hugely disappointed in stew mac. first time buying from them, will be the last.
the pearloid one looks great on my American strat. Initially used it on squier, but took it off and put it on the American strat when I sold the squier. Fit both guitars with out modification, but is a tight fit. Expect to remove your neck when installing, or removing.
Tried making it fit both my American AND Mexican strats, and ended up cutting it up for scraps. The screw holes just wouldnt line up, and the fit was crooked.
The quality is perfect. Fits good. The color is exactly like on the picture.
Excellent product for the price. It is identical ofthe original.
Used this on a recent Strat build, looks a million bucks and everything fitted without the need to do any modifications.
easy replacement for fender strat pick guard.
I like these guards a lot - good quality, and the dimensions and screw holes fit USA and Mexican Fenders perfectly
