I bought the black 8 hole Standard Tele pickguard to change the look of my MIM second-hand acquisition. This screwed right on, fitting the body, neck joint, neck pickup, and control panel like a glove. Just peel the protective coating and go. It's got the three-ply black/white/black parchment and is a welcome upgrade.

Picking scratches already on it?

I have been a faithful customer of Musician's Friend for a few years now and this is the first purchase I have made from them that I have been a little less than satisfied. The pickguard came in the original fender packaging but when I pulled it out I noticed that the pickguard had alot of scratches on it exactly as if someone had already used it before. I do not know if this is Fender's fault or MF's fault by I was dissapointed by the amount of wear that was on this supposedly "new" pickguard. I guess it does not matter too much since pickguards eventually develop scratches over time anyways but I wish that the pickguard I ordered would have been in better/new condition considering the money I spent on it. Oh well. I know now not to order pickguards again here in the future. Good luck with your purchase if you decide to buy this.

    Comments about Fender American Standard 8-Hole Telecaster Pickguard:

    When I ordered this we,including customer service representative, tried to determine if this 3-ply pickguard was entirely black and believe this to be so. However the middle ply was white. I wanted an entirely black one so I do not have the look I really wanted for my new Telecaster.

    Good pickguard

    By Review Guy

    Comments about Fender American Standard 8-Hole Telecaster Pickguard:

    If you want a good black pickguard for an 8-hole Tele, this is it. Just remember to remove the film from it.
    This is your basic 3-ply, black/white/black, 8-hole Telecaster pickguard. It does not include screws (which presumably will already be in your guitar). It's easy to install with just one small phillips screwdriver, though you might have to loosen your switchplate to get the pickguard seated properly.
    It's fine, but realize that when it's new there's a protective film over the pickguard that makes it look like it was run over with a golf cart. Remove the film and it's fine. Don't be a ding-a-ling like I was and send it back because it looked used. (In my defense, the MF customer service person didn't say anything about a protective film, she just said to return it. I figured out the film part later.)
    It's a pickguard. Nothing special to it.

    WILL FIT MEXICAN TELECASTER!

    By JansenLewis

    from Lynn, IN

    Comments about Fender American Standard 8-Hole Telecaster Pickguard:

    I took a chance buying this product, for I didn't not know if it would fit my Mexican Telecaster or not. I have a natural ash Tele that used to have a white pickguard. I thought that the white pickguard looked cheap and I wanted my guitar to look sharper so, obviously, I purchased this pickguard. It only took me 5 minutes to take off the strings, take off the old pickguard, and install the new one. It was the best decision that I have made for my Tele!!

          Comments about Fender American Standard 8-Hole Telecaster Pickguard:

          I replaced the white pick guard on my late 80's Candy Apple Red Telecaster with this black one and it really transformed the look for the better. The old white one was yellowed with age, and the black has a much more purposeful look. Fit was perfect, although worth checking out the Youtube videos to figure out the neck pickup connection. Do yourself a favor and hold off until you're ready to change the strings, as they really need to come off to fit. Based on some net wisdom, I would also recommend lightly sanding the back or using a dryer sheet. I did neither, but there was some noticeable buzzing from static when rubbing fingers over it at first, although that went away after about a week

              Comments about Fender American Standard 8-Hole Telecaster Pickguard:

              I bought this genuine Fender pick guard because I didn't want to deal with aftermarket ones not fitting my 1984 Fender Tele correctly. I figured the extra cost would be good insurance for higher quality and a precise fit.

              Nope.

              The screw holes are in the right place, but the routing for the neck pocket is not. Rather than take the time to send it back and try again, I decided to break out my Dremel and fix it myself, but I'm sorely disappointed that an actual Fender product does not fit the Fender guitar it's intended for.

                        I bought this for my MIM Standard Tele in Midnight Wine. The black pickguard makes my guitar look one million times better. Installation was very easy (Be careful not to lose the rubber springs for your neck pickup). The pickguard is exactly the same as the stock one, except the colors are inverted. This one is black with a white middle. The product arrived absolutely flawless. Getting the protective film off was the hardest part!

                          Putting a black pick guard on my blonde Telecaster gives it a whole new look that I really like. It couldn't be easier to do. I suggest loosening the control plate while changing the pickguard. Don't forget to peel off the protective clear film during installation. This genuine Fender pick guard fits perfectly when completed. A great way to renew the looks of your Tele.

                              I bought it to give a vintage look to my White American tele and It looks better than I spected. The only side down was the tone-vol crome plate curve didnt fit perfectly, so I made a little modification to the pickguard, but that s all! It gives a awesome looks to the most cheaper tele. Buy it and everyone will note the diference.

                                    There isn't much to say. This product does its intended purpose and provides a fresh look to the axe.

                                        I bought it for a telecaster sguier and hope it would fit without making to many adjustments .IT fit with out making any.
