These pickguards fit American, Japanese and Mexican Strats®. There are many Strat® clones. If it isn't a Fender®, Proceed With Caution!
ATTENTION: If you are putting a Volume Knob in the Control 1 position you cannot put a P-90 Pickup in the Bridge Position.
Fender imports are generally built to US specifications, but are NOT always 100% compatible… The perimeter
mounting holes may be in slightly different locations. No big deal if you don't mind plugging and redrilling 3 to 4 holes (not likely to adversely impact the collector's value). Other than these perimeter holes, everything else is usually compatible.
For the best results, you can print out this full size PDF for comparisons of mounting hole and pickup locations as well as perimeter measurements. DO NOT SELECT "Fit to Page."
Routing for the Floyd Rose Bridge
Routing for the larger Floyd Rose tremolo is optional.This moves the location of hole # 8 about 7/16" to the side.
When ordering a replacement pickguard, pay particular attention to the location of screw hole #5. This is the only hole that varies in location.
Specify the pattern you want when ordering.
The 8-hole conversion model has the basic 8-hole look, but #5 is in the newer ('59 and later) positions. No "new" holes are required
when changing an 11-hole pickguard to an 8-hole conversion model. Note that some hole locations on replacement pickguards may vary from the original.
