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.

      The pickguard itself is very nice. Isn't made for a Squier Strat but definitely improves the look.

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

      Added eye candy for old Kramer Focus 111S. Installed AXL, white perloid 4 ply, 11 hole pickguard to replace solid black factor guard. Only two holes were a perfect match, required several new screw holes. Profile was nearly perfect. Has had southern exposure to window for a couple of months and no sings of yellowing (yet) This came with one small scratch that I did not notice, before I pulled the plastic film. It was not worth my trouble to return. I know from past experience that MF would have been no trouble, if I had wanted a replacement.

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

          I'm doing a Strat partscaster, and the body I purchased is NOT a Fender or Squier, so I didn't expect the holes to line up... and I was right. ;-)

          Quality seems to be good, but this guitar will be my first Strat, so I just don't have any experience with Strat pickguards to which I can compare. That being said, it's 3-ply (I got the black), "feels" sturdy enough, and the reflective backing that goes over the control rout tests out to be nice and conductive on my multi-meter. I have no reason to believe that this is anything but a good quality piece of gear.

          Good for price but I had to smooth out around cutouts. Also had to drill bigger holes for the CTS 250ohm pots I installed on my old MIM Strat.

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

            Original Squier Affinity pick guard was warped, had gaps between the body and guard. Item came in a well sealed package and guard had protective film. Installation was a piece of cake and fit and finish are perfect. All screw holes aligned perfectly. New guard lays flush with no gaps. Perfect fit around pups, neck and bridge. 3 ply with black layer adds a nice look to the guitar. Highly recommend.

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

                      At at entry-level price, a Squier Stratocaster is likely to show some of its cost-cutting measures. In this case, it was the stock white pickguard that was easily scratched and cosmetically uninspired. So, I replaced it with a black pearloid, triple laminated pickguard. The whole swap took a screwdriver and maybe twenty minutes, and it improved the look immensely. But, buyer beware: some "standard" replacement pickguards will not be a perfect match for a Squier. In this case, the standard 11-screw configuration required me to drill one hole in order to assure a perfect match. Be careful when ordering and be prepared to make modifications if necessary. If yours is an expensive guitar, consider leaving this job to a trusted professional.

                          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.
