Great Tone

By

The quality of SM has always been consistently good, and I have bought enough product from this company that makes me more than qualified to make such a statement. However, this last purchase was a bit of a disappointment. The pups sound very good but the pickguard was very poorly made. The edges were unfinished and the it looked like I took an exato knife and carved it out myself by hand.
I still think SM is a quality outfit, I was just disappointed that they would send such a poorly made pickguard.
Would I purchase from SM again? Absolutely, but I felt I needed to make this known to them.

I bought a used Chinese Squire Strat for $100.00 with a case. Honestly, I wanted the case. The guitar sounded like crap. I found this pre wired pickguard assembly and figured what can it hurt. Can't be any worse, so I bought one. Took about 1/2 hour to install including restringing it and soldering and adjusting the pick ups and sounds really nice now. Well worth the money and minimal effort to install

I adapted it to my Old Kraftsman Guitar

I bought a blank sheet of pick guard and cut the openings to fit the Old Kraftsman guitar while I removed the pickups and switches from the pickguard assembly. It sounds great, and the wires were long enough between pickups that it adapted well to the openings in the Old Kraftsman. I used a dremel tool, a drill and bits, some sandpaper and one solder connection. I can't believe how jerry rigging this old guitar brought it back to life! For about $50.00 it is a helluva deal.

Great for the money

I ordered one of these for an Indonesian Squier Strat whose pots were pretty much shot, and whose pickups weren't too great either. It fit perfectly. Dropped in in less than an hour. All I had to do was was remove the old pickguard assembly, solder to output jack and bridge, and screw the new one in. It sounds great, and it was cheaper than even buying pickups and pots separately.

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.

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.
