We've been building complete and fully loaded Strat® pickguard assemblies since we started our business in 2009. Thousands of musicians world-wide have employed our services to build them a new pickguard assembly so they could achieve the tone and character from their Strat® that they've been searching for.  We have some of the best pricing to help with tight budgets in a tough economy.  We employ rigid quality control procedures throughout the pickguard assembly build process to ensure that your pickguard assembly will be received in perfect operating order ready for a quick and easy install to get you rocking your new tone in no time.

Each of our complete and fully loaded Strat® pickguard assemblies are built to order in our shop, wired and soldered by hand and thoroughly tested to ensure you receive an assembly that operates perfectly.  Prior to building your pickguard assembly we test every single component to ensure they are within manufacturers rated tolerances and that they operate correctly, then after completion of an assembly we perform a thorough test on the completed assembly to ensure correct function and operation in all pickup selection modes as well as volume and tone control adjustment range.  These testing procedures are documented, component values are recorded, a report is generated and the assembly is then certified as 100% operational. The testing and certification report is then provided with each pickguard assembly.  Installation instructions are included with each pickguard assembly.

All of the pickguards we use in our assemblies are genuine Fender® with the exception of the Acrylic pickguards we manufacture in our shop and the unique pickguards offered with our Custom Quad 44-TPS pickguard assembly which come from Warmoth Guitars.  All of the pickup covers, knobs and switch tips are also genuine Fender® or Seymour Duncan for their logo pickup covers.  We use high quality CTS 450G series 250k 10% tolerance potentiometers, CRL selector switches and 225 series Orange Drop polyester film tone capacitors.  All interconnect wire is 22 AWG UL1007 pre-tinned copper wire PVC insulated.  We use Kester #245 Sn63/Pb37 solder. We DO NOT use Fender packaged CTS potentiometers simply because they are manufactured to a 25% tolerance which allows them to have a wide range of actual DC resistance values, we've seen them as low as 185K which will cause your tone to suffer high end treble loss, Our CTS 450G series potentiometers are manufactured with a very close adherence to the rated 250K DC resistance.

Our pickup selection choices include those from Fender® and Seymour Duncan.  We offer all of the Fender® models of single coil pickups available consisting of the Custom Shop Custom '54, Custom Shop Custom '69, Custom Shop Fat '60s, Custom Shop Fat '50s, Custom Shop Texas Specials, Pure Vintage 1954 (Limited Edition), Pure Vintage 1956, Pure Vintage 1959, Pure Vintage 1965, Original '57/'62, Noiseless N3, N4, Super 55, Vintage Noiseless, Hot Noiseless, Tex-Mex, Deluxe Drive, Yosemite and the Eric Johnson signature set.  The Seymour Duncan pickup sets include the SSL-1, SSL-3, SSL-5, SSL-52, Antiquity II Surfer and a some custom combination pickup set pickguard assemblies.

Turn-around time from order placement until your pickguard assembly will be ready for shipment is no longer than 45 days.

We ship all complete pickguard assemblies via USPS Priority Mail in a sturdy, oversized corrugated shipping box with plenty of packing cushioning to protect your pickguard assembly nicely.  Typical transit time is 1-3 business days within the USA, so you'll get your assembly quick once it is complete and on its way to you.

If you don't see a specific pickguard assembly option you are interested in, drop us an email and let us know what you are interested in.  Some upgrades or special features may include a small up-charge dependent on your specific needs.

Each of our complete Strat pickguard assemblies are built using components to fit genuine Fender® Strat's®, this does not include some Squier® by Fender® Strat's®, some Squier® Strat's® may have incompatibility issues in the mounting hole patterns and control cavity routing depths and styles as well as overall body thickness incompatibilities. So if you have a Squier® by Fender® Strat® do your research before purchasing any of our complete pickguard assemblies to ensure that our assemblies will be compatible with your particular model of Strat®.
