Custom Manufactured Black 1 Ply 0.120" Acrylic Pickguard With Rounded And Polished Edge

Three Screw Fender Humbucker HSS Pickup Configuration - RIGHT HANDED
An OverDrive Custom Guitar Works Exclusive


New for 2017 is our fat Strat® HSS black 1 ply 0.120" Acrylic pickguard with our signature feature of the rounded and polished perimeter edge. This HSS pickguard is designed for a Fender Humbucking bridge pickup that uses 3 screws for mounting.

Your everyday typical Strat® pickguard will have a 45° beveled edge that is found on just about any Strat® for the last 50+ years. The rounding and polishing of the perimeter edge of a pickguard gives it a presence and style that really sets it apart from the rest, see photograph below.

These pickguards are the same style found on Gilmour's Black Strat® except these do not have the small slot for the recessed mini-toggle switch and these are for a Humbucker and two single coil pickups.

This pickguards bridge pickup cut-out dimensions are designed around Fender's standard Humbucker (without a metal cover). The Humbucking bridge pickup mounting uses the typical Fender 3 screw system with a mounting spacing of 3.10".

This pickguards middle and neck pickup cut-outs are dimensioned for standard single coil pickups.

Be sure to confirm your pickups mounting requirements for compatibility with this pickguards specifications before ordering.

This pickguard has a standard 11 hole mounting pattern, the selector switch and single coil pickup mounting holes are not countersunk and require Phillips round head mounting screws. Potentiometer mounting holes are standard 3/8" in diameter. Each pickguard is copper foil shielded in the control region only.

Pickup Mounting Specifications

  • Neck Pickup: Standard. Single Coil
  • Middle Pickup: Standard Single Coil
  • Bridge Pickup Cut-Out: 2.76" x 1.475"
  • Bridge Pickup Mounting: Spacing 3.10"


Each pickguard is custom manufactured on an "As Ordered" basis. There is up to 28 day build time on these pickguards. No returns or exchanges so be sure of your pickups compatibility and mounting requirements before ordering.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Our Acrylic pickguards are 0.120" thick (+/- a few thousands of an inch) so keep this pickguard thickness in mind when installing a 0.120" thick Acrylic pickguard on a Strat® with a 22 fret neck, make sure you measure the total amount of clearance you have underneath your 22'nd fret overhang and the surface of your body to ensure that there is enough room to accommodate the 0.120" thick Acrylic pickguard with at least a few thousands of an inch of extra clearance for breathing room between the top surface of the Acrylic pickguard and the underside of the 22'nd fret overhang. The vast majority of 22 fret necks and body combinations will work fine with our 0.120" thick Acrylic pickguards but we have seen a rare few that won't and will need some sort of adjustment for correct fitment. You DO NOT want to tighten down any neck where its 22'nd fret overhang makes contact with the surface of the pickguard, you could very well lift the fingerboard away from the neck by the leveraging forces of tightening down the neck.

Typical turn-around time from order placement to shipment is up to 45 days.  Holiday work-loads sometimes may increase turn-around time, but keep in mind, we don't waste any time in getting these prepared, packed and shipped on their way to you. 

Each pickguard is custom manufactured for each customer and does not qualify for return, exchange or refund.
