Thinner than expected, not lining up.

Trying to install the pickguard and found out it is a single ply. The one that comes with the start kit is a (3) ply. The thickness (so be careful) and the cutout for the bridge are different. The cutouts do not allow me to seat the neck all the way into the body. Trying to work it out at this time with Stew Mac. I see they make a (3) ply that may correct the problem. Seems like good quality just need to get it to fit properly with the bridge and the neck..

Bringing a inexpensive strat to life again!

By

My wife's nephew recently brought a Fender copy guitar to me to bring it back to playable condition. It needed a completely new pickguard with switch and 3 single coil pickups. Purchased the black one, because I had built 2 copies of Fender guitars, and knew from experience that this pickguard would drop right in and provide the tones and versatility Bud wanted.

Placed my order, and in just a short time, had the pickguard, installed it, restrung the guitar, set the intonation, and called Bud to come and get it.

Bud also brought two guitars he had bought from customers of his business, and set the intonation and basically tuned up his instruments.

He was satisfied with the pickguard, and the guitar met his likes and needs. Glad to have bought this from Stew-Mac and will continue to purchase in the future.

Thanks for being there!

I bought this bargain loaded pickup ($52!) for a Squier Strat rebuild and, considering the price, it exceeded my expectations.

This loaded pick guard is ideal when years of soldering and unfortunate mods have destroyed an old Strat. Having clean, working components in one simple package makes the job a snap.

Pre Wired Pickguard Assembly

By

Verified Buyer


I purchased this to breath some life into an Indonesian Squire Affinity. There are no instructions included with the kit. You should reuse the wiring to the trem and cavity grounds, You get a new input jack and wiring as well. Overall soldering requirement is low.
The pick guard is single ply and only one or two mounting holes lined up. I take it that there are a few different screw patterns between squires and fenders. This will require drilling into you guitar. I had expected this after reading other reviews.
The wiring is very tidy, very professional looking. The knobs look like the originals. The overall black on black looks actually really great on the tobacco burst.
The sound is very nicely balanced between pickups. The pickups are an improvement over what had come with the guitar.
I have to say that for the cost this was a very good upgrade and done in less than an hour including a restring.
I like the black so much that I bought new black tuners that should be here this week.
This wasn't very hard, just be prepared for a little soldering and some drilling. At least after the drilling you can take any new Strat pick guards.

I bought this for my Strat as the old one was getting a bit on the slow side and to also brighten my guitar up a bit.
It is still in the box yet and will fit it when time is there looks great.

Ditch the pick guard. Everything else is put together very well and the pickups are very good for the money. It brought my second hand squier back to life. Stewmac did a great job with the entire package; I’ll definitely patronize again.

Good iaxe repl.

I have a behringer iaxe 393 that died. Tried the cheapo pre-wired kits on amazon and still had a ground short. The guard on this is bigger so I swapped the parts over to the old guard and it sounds great. I also disconnected the usb and headphone jacks as I dont use them.
