Works as it should, even tho the quality isn't so great
meaning the sound i'm getting is probably best for practice and not playing live.
but for $50 bucks I can't complain
Thanks

Sounds good, but didn’t fit with bridge or neck

By

Verified Buyer


I have an older Japanese Squire with a Floyd Rose style tremolo and this didn’t fit at the bridge or the neck. I had to do a fair amount of trimming on the plastic to get it to work. Now that it’s in it sounds pretty decent, just know that you may be in for more labor than you bargained for.

Not bad for the price

By

Verified Buyer


I got this item to do a mod on an old (12 yoa) Squier, that no longer functioned. The preloaded pickguard was appealing because of the minimal soldering involved. It fit inside the cavity perfectly, but only two of the original holes lined-up. Ni biggy there. The wiring was relatively simple. However no ground wire supplied. Again, no biggy there, I just used the old one. And now the most important part: the sound. It kinda falls short of expectations. But, for $45 it was well worth the price. Considering this was my first total gut/soldering job, and the fact that it was black fit my need. I just wished there was something a little better offered for a little more money. I couldn’t justify the $150-300 price tag on a first time mod like this, on something of a higher end in quality. But, I’m very happy with outcome. Overall it was a great experience.

pickups sound great

The holes didn't line up on the Squire I wanted to put them on, so I pulled the pickups and harness out of the new pickguard and put the assembly into the old pick guard. What a vast improvement. Although the low-priced version I'm very impressed with the golden age pickups and recommend them for any replacement (put some on my tele too with similar success)

Great Buy

I bought this loaded pick guard for an older Squire Strat. The old electronics were giving me a lot of problems, especially the 5 Way switch. My order arrived quickly and I was impressed with the quality. Installed quickly and old friend was makin music again.

Just what the old Harmony needed!!!

I installed the pre-wired pickguard in an old Harmony H80T.....they have brought it back to life with the sparkle and clean sound that single coils are known for........highly recommend.

Good value

By

Verified Buyer


OK, so for $50 you know it's foreign made, and the pole pieces are a kind of extender for the ceramic magnets. The pots have the smaller bodies which is not unusual for something this price.
I bought the assembly to pop in a beater/Frankenstein Strat (nothing really Fender in it). I was really happy with the sound which is pretty faithful to a vintage axe. Both tone controls are useful for blending on any pickup setting. The wiring is very neat and tidy.

I wasn't sure how i'd like the golden age pickups in this but I needed to replace the guts in my guitar. These pickups have a nice warm tone with just enough bite.

Excellent value for when you've just given up

By

Verified Buyer


I messed around trying to wire my pos strat myself. First to fix a grounding issue, then to fix my fix of a grounding issue. Eventually I wasn't getting any sound out of it. I bought this kit just to start over and it works perfectly. I heard it was the best "value" pickguard assembly, and it seems to be living up to the hype. The pickups are at least as good (actually sound a little better) as the pups previously installed on my craigslist nee pawn shop hard-worn affinity strat.

It's a working man's solution, but it's a working man's price. So I can't fault it for anything.

Great product for the money

By

Verified Buyer


I bought this to replace a pickguard the come on a used guitar. The sound of the pickups on this pickguard is great for the money, but I was a little disappointed to find that there were no screws sent with the pickguard, glad I didn't throw away the old ones.
