The only strat part I needed to complete my project (Squier strat body) was a 3-Ply black pickguard. I checked everywhere online, and couldn't find one that was inexpensive (shipping usually killed it). A few cheaper ones I found were sold and shipped directly from China and I didn't feel like waiting 10-15 days. I stumbled upon this and decided I had nothing to lose at the price (free shipping too).

The new pickguard had a tiny bit of a factory smear of some kind (about a 1/2" light hazing on the front) on it that wouldn't come off (not very noticeable), but my overall expectations were exceeded. The hole fit was spot on (not very common when changing out pickguards) with the exception of 1 hole, which was an easy adjustment to make.

There's no real discernible difference with this one vs. other more expensive branded ones to my eyes. If you need an inexpensive and good pickguard quick, look no further.
It's an aftermarket SSS pickguard for a strat, nothing more or less.
The quality is much better than what I expected for something so inexpensive. Mounting hole placement was a surprising 10 out of 11, pot holes are larger 3/8" (CTS pots, etc) as opposed to the smaller 1/4" holes most import pickguards come with (I usually need to drill them out myself to fit CTS pots).
Excellent value (especially with free shipping). Looks identical to the brand name ones that sell for 2-3 times the price.

Here's the problem. Everyone gets this pickguard, slaps it on and just marvels at how good/renewed/ampd it makes you axe look. BUT, if you wait a few months THEN you'll note that these pickguards start to fade or yellow drastically. A year into buying and installing the white pearloid and a plain white pickguard I can tell you these have yellowed out beyond normal. Fine if your going for a vintage look, but in the case of the white pearloid guard, I expected and wanted it to retain it's initial luster for some time. Now it looks like "vanilla piss" pearloid.

      Comments about Musician's Gear 3 Single-Coil Pickguard:

      I had an old Ibanez Blazer (Strat. copy) guitar with a smashed pick guard sitting in my basement for 25 years that I wanted to restore. I wanted a classic Stratocaster sound. The Lace Sensor Gold wired pick guard was a perfect choice. You can hear what it sounds like on the Lace website. Great quality. I knew how to install it,but I recommend that a novice find someone to install it for them. Installation instruction are included, but not intended for a beginner.

          Comments about Musician's Gear 3 Single-Coil Pickguard:

          One day I went into a gig, and some teen said to me... "another strat?" IT was the classic black on white pick guard. That kind a bothered me. Is it so obvious? Yet, the kid asked me if he could try it out. (He was novice and was borrowing someone else's guitar. He didn't own a guitar of his won.) I showed the unique features that a strat had to offer and when he did by his guitar... it was a classic black and white. Eventually I got tired of the look and bought the black pearl, with black pick up cover and knobs. It gives it fancier look. Everyone I meet likes the combination. I play electric in church and though it is more excepted in modern church music, you still get those people who see an electric guitar and complain. Yet, pearl pick guard seems to be more acceptable for I don't get that many complaints. It's a good look for a toned down audience like church members who look for softer music, yet, can definitely stand up as hard axe... So, I would recommend it for the artistic look that it brings to your guitar, so you don't have to find a subdued looking guitar just for softer music, then take another out for harder rock...

              Darker Black than Shown in Picture

                Comments about Musician's Gear 3 Single-Coil Pickguard:

                This pickguard was great for the price. Shipped quickly. Good quality. Unfortunately, it is blacker than represented in the online picture which is more silver. Not quite the look I was going for, but now that I have it installed I'm keeping it.

                BTW, I installed on a '92 Peavey Predator. It was snug getting it under the neck, but eventually managed it. Since the Peavey was originally 8 holes and not all the holes lined up, I ended up drilling 5 new holes to make it fit. Not a big deal.

                    I bought the pick guard and control knobs based on the low-cost, but was impressed with how quickly they shipped and were well-packaged- for free. Finally, the quality was excellent and everything fit perfectly. All just as pictured. My Stratocaster looks much nicer, and perhaps just my imagination- sounds better. Thanks.

                    This pick guard looks great on my black strat, I replaced the factory white one. But, it was hard to install, pickups and the tone switch dropped into the body and it was hard to get screws back in.

                          It was time to replace the switch and the neck pick up, so I decided to go from the white to the black. I had ordered a wired pickguard from another company (mistake) it was awful. I ordered this pickguard to put all the new electronics in and it fit perfectly. I have had this guitar near 18 years and play it daily. The black gave it a new look and I am very pleased with the quality of this item.
