Excellent value - performs well

By

Verified Buyer


I bought this to fix a Squier mini strat. The way to do this was to remove the parts from the full size pick guard and re-install on the smaller one after creating a place for the second tone control. It was really easy and the resulting guitar is excellent. The previous electrics had been water damaged and I did not trust them at all. I think I may be to line the cut outs with silver foil and check the electrics since there are some tiny issues, BUT I am thrilled. BTW the shipping time and cost was perfect.

Good value for a beginner like myself.

Bought this for a strat copy made by Samick that was gifted to me that had a bad volume know. I am a beginner player so didn't need anything fancy and was reluctant to buy the cheap variety found in other places. All the sauter joints and wiring is neat. 2 wire installation was easy but mounting was a little harder as it didn't fit my guitar exactly so need the upper right hand neck pocket bit cut. The screws didn't all line up either so had to drill new holes. Only bad part about it was the pickguard edges still show mill marks so does not look as neat and finished as what came on my guitar. Since I have only ever played 1 guitar I cannot comment on sound quality but I think it sounds pretty good and much better than what was replaced .

Craigslist 70s Lotus L680 hiding out in a dark closet begging to be loved. $45.00 for a prewired guard/pup setup? Nah.........but wait! It actually sounds great! Don't forget to foil every nook and cavity! To all of us who see beauty in those "lost and abandoned" children, StewMac brings em home!

I bought loaded pick guards so I wouldn't have to wait for my pickups to come in. They were there when they said they would. Now I'm ready to build again.

A pawn shop to it's highest level!

Several years ago I picked up a pawn shop Sier Strat that was really solid. This pickguard assembly was my final tweaking to it and now I wouldn't sell this for twice what I originally paid! I kept the original tri colored pickguard (like its look better!) and after swapping over the electronics was like a new guitar. This was an exceptional upgrade - it always played really well and now it has the sound to match! At this price there is no reason not to upgrade a decent lower end instrument to reach it's full potential. Best $40 I've spent on guitar improvements in ten years!

Quick and easy

This pre-wired pickguard dropped right in to an old beater guitar that I was rebuilding. I had the jack and ground wires soldered in less than a half-hour. When I plugged in, it sounded like a standard Strat. No complaints!

Morris Strat Redivivus

Easy to fit for a very nervous first-time solderer. Sounds much better than the originals on a 1982 Japanese Morris Strat, originally bought for the equivalent of $40. Also added a Gotoh bridge — makes all the difference, as the original bridge was really substandard.

Loaded Strat Pickguard A+

Thumbs up on this. I was tasked with loading a stripped down Squire. This was a very economical and quick way to do it.
The supplied Pguard was cheap-looking (expected for the price) and would have lined up with the existing holes "fairly well". I opted to remove the parts and mount to the guitars original guard.No problems, sounds great!
