      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.

      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.

                          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...
