Ali Express Strat Pickguards

Post by murky »

Anyone tried/found an Ali source for Strat pickguards that match vintage 11 hole spec - shape, holes in the right place etc?

Haven’t had much luck over the years - every time I buy cheap, shit’s wrong. My reference for “right” is the Warmoth and Stew Mac offerings. Even though they’re ever so slightly different, I assume they’re within spitting distance of the old spec.

Lot of folks on offsetguitars have reported that their Jazzmaster and Jaguar pickguards fit vintage spec, so I'd expect the Strat guards to be the same.
