pretty darn good

great replacement for that inexpensive guitar. The pickups sound fine and the pots and selector switch are not scratchy, I was surprised at how quite they were and it was a breeze to install.

Fantastic value

I bought one of these loaded assemblies to put in a Peavey Raptor carcass I got cheap online. All the hardware fit the Peavey just fine and was super easy to install. It now sounds fantastic. The tech I had set up this guitar told me he was jealous of this great setup. He was amazed at the tone from a $40 setup.

really nice pup's

i put together a "frankenstrat" version fender, i was looking at preassembled pickguards to save me some time. i came across stewmac's preassembled pickguards and decided to try them out and the guitar sounds great! excellent price, not diappointed at all.

4169-B (Black pre-made Pick Guard)

By Red Fox Guitars from Albert Lea, MN

Considering the expense of building a guard assembly with pups and switches, this is a great deal financially. It improved my junker by around 80%. I added 3- 4955 Knob position indicators to make it look really sharp. I had to drill couple extra holes in the guitar body. No big deal. Truly have to concentrate to hear any difference in the Bridge Tone from 0-10. Neck tone difference from 0-10 can be heard. You can always change pots or wiring, but for the cost, it's still a good deal.

A believer..

Much better sound than I thought I would get for this price. I purchased three of them and they all sound great.

Exactly what i was looking for

I got the black pickguard with 3 pickups and 5 way switch, and it works BEAUTIFUL!

do the job for this price

for this price, can't said to bad thinks... Just that pickgard is far from finish of originals, and than screw hole where not alls align to guitar's body holes... for the electronic stuff, nothing wrong ! So if you buy it for a fine strat, take an aditional pickgard to replace this one ;-)

I didn't believe the sound this pickups deliver based on the price. Even with all the good reviews.

This is an excellent product and my client is very satisfied and happy with it (he's a pro)

You guys rock

I purchased the pre-wired pickguard to save me time, (and money) for the re-build I'm doing for my old strat. I could not be happier, goods came in about a week, now its loaded, and looks great. I will definitely be coming back to Stew-Mac for any other projects I've got.
