This pickguard does not have any shielding as it
comes to us from Fender, you should consider
including item #
001-9640-000 for the '50s period specific
type of shielding to your order, or for a full
coverage type of shielding use item #
fully shield your pickguard. However, the
shield would need two of its perimeter mounting
holes adjusted to mount accurately with this
vintage 8 hole pickguard.
Tortoise shell pickguards are subject to
warping, it is a characteristic of the celluloid
and vinyl layering. Here is a
