Put your Strat on tracks with this tonally superior pickguard.

Drop this hum-cancelling DiMarzio prewired pickguard into your Stratocaster to receive the benefits of a 3-ply-thick pickguard with a built-in volume knob, 2 separate tone knobs, a 5-way "blade" pickup selector, and the impeccable tone quality offered by 3 distinct DiMarzio "rails" guitar pickups.

Neck Pickup: Pro Track DP188
It's warm, it's friendly, and it sounds like a vintage PAF pickup and will drop right into your Strat. The Pro Track has enough power for any pickup position, and the twin black blades mean there won't be any problems with string-alignment or dropouts.

Middle Pickup: Fast Track 1 DP181
The Fast Track 1 has a bright, clean sound—not at all like a full-size humbucker. The dual-blade continuous magnetic field creates an even string balance with very little magnet-pull, eliminating those out-of-tune occurrences common to rod-magnet designs. The Fast Track 1 pickup's power is double the output of a standard single-coil.

Bridge Pickup: Fast Track 2 DP182
Though it's not any bigger than a single-coil guitar pickup, Fast Track 2 has 3 times the output of an average single-coil, with a huge mid-range and bass punch. This single-coil sized bridge pickup is particularly useful when you need a tightly focused jolt of power to crank your amplifier into rich overdrive.

Features

  • 3-ply-thick pickguard
  • 3 prewired "rails" pickups
  • 250kOhms volume knob
  • 250kOhms neck tone knob
  • 250kOhms middle/bridge tone knob

Ride these "rails" for your best Strat sound!

        Comments about DiMarzio FG2108 Fast Track Prewired Pickguard:

        Recently I picked up a Squire Vintage Modified Strat that had Duncan Designed pups. They weren't bad but I just can't deal with the 60 cycle hum. Dropped in the Dimarzio Fast track. WOW! I've been playing for almost 50 years. Started in '64. I can't believe the tones and the QUIET of these pups. Install was a snap. Still have the Fender cleans, well almost, and it will get as dirty as I need. The Squire is my go to now. I have an American Deluxe strat that is now my backup. The great thing about this prewired pickguard is the pups are really well matched. Each is perfect. Well worth the price. Ya can't go wrong with this setup.

          Great product, will use old pickguard to shield, put better feeling pots in, then will copy DiMarzio wiring with silver/copper wire and transfer pickups into pickguard. Meanwhile I can use my Fender Standard Stratocaster with this.

              No tone control for middle pickup...not sure if that is the way its supposed to be. Dimarzio tech support hasn't answered my email. Holes don't line up exactly. Other than that sounds great. Nice full powerful tone at 6, Strat like at 3, insane raunchy at 10. Still struggling with the rails look. Too bad no one makes a paf humbucker with the single size and looks.

              A worthwhile upgrade to any Strat

              By Anonymous

              from Undisclosed

              Comments about DiMarzio FG2108 Fast Track Prewired Pickguard:

              I installed this on a Mexi-Strat with no problems. The tone really stands out now. I do not notice any single coil hum since each pickup is dual coil. It does not sound like humbuckers in a Strat body which is what I like best about it. Since it has duo rail pickups, there is no worry about getting the right pole spacing to suit the string spacing. The pre-wired pickguard was also cheaper than buying 3 dual rail pickups and "soldering" them all yourself.

              Comments about DiMarzio FG2108 Fast Track Prewired Pickguard:

              I purchased the FG2108 to get more versatility out of my strat and I was not disappointed. I installed it in about 10 minutes and played out with it last night. I usually switch between several guitars during a show, but last night I used the strat for the entire show. Every pickup position is totally usable and tasty. Great purchase!

              Improvement over my phat Strat.

              Comments about DiMarzio FG2108 Fast Track Prewired Pickguard:

              I bought this to replace my Phat Strat pickups and found a significant improvement. The unwanted hum was less giving better clarity. The controlled feedback is better also. I am very satisfied with the purchase.
