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:

    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:

      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...

      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.

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

        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.

        Pretty solid for the price

        By Jonathan Silva

        from Winter Park, FL

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

        It looked just like the picture, it fit on my strat, the holes lined up, and now my guitar looks different. It did everything I had expected it to.
        I didn't expect much for the price, but it fit right on my MIM strat. I just wanted to change the look and with this thing the mission was accomplished.
        It was no worse than the original pickguard that came on my strat. 3 ply b/w/b.
        For the money you're not going to beat it.

        Good, works, but not great

        By Jag-53SbX

        from Santa Clara, CA

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

        I purchased the black pickguard. It looks great, however the 6 holes for the pickups were not big enough so I had to drill them out slightly bigger -the guard then went on just fine. This isn't a big deal if you have and know how to use a drill. I don't know if my strat model (American Deluxe) has a different size screw for the pickups or if this replacement pick guard was simply not manufactured correctly -so maybe my experience won't be an issue for other people. The holes match up about 98% perfectly -two or three are off just a hair, but you'd only notice it if you look REALLY close. The price is nice and cheap and the guard looks really nice -a lot better than the stock brown that came with my black Fender. I would have bought a Fender-made guard, but couldn't find one -too bad. But this one is working and looking great...after a little minor drilling on it. Another thing...my Fender is a brand new upper-end model and when I took off my stock pickguard I found loose pieces of solder, dust, and other debris in the body under the guard! That can't be good, floating around in there with the electronics. So look in there and clean out whatever loose debris you find.

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