Item # 5000ACR OverDrive Custom Guitar Works' Fully Loaded Complete Strat® Pickguard Assembly
Your choice of any of the genuine Fender® pickup sets or our special pickup combination sets
All built around our very own custom manufactured Black or White Acrylic Pickguards with the Rounded and Polished Edge

We custom build each of these complete Strat® pickguard assemblies in our shop by hand for every customer based on the unique specifications selected below.

Custom built in our shop, complete and fully loaded Strat® pickguard assembly.  Includes everything ready to drop in to your favorite Strat® by simply hooking up the hot wire (audio) and ground wires.  Includes your choice of one of nine genuine Fender® pickup sets or from one of our special pickup combination sets, all built around our very own custom manufactured Black or White 1 Ply 0.120" Acrylic pickguards with the Rounded and Polished Perimeter Edge. These Acrylic pickguards are the same as our Gilmour Black Strat® pickguard assemblies but do not have the recessed mini-toggle switching system.  Includes CTS potentiometers, Sprague Orange Drop tone capacitor, CRL pickup selector switch, genuine Fender® knobs, pickup covers and switch tip.

Our Acrylic pickguards are copper foil shielded in the control region only, if you desire a full coverage aluminum pickguard shield it can be added extra as an "Add On" assembly option. This pickguard shield is the same 0.012" thick aluminum shielding plate used on '62 Strat® pickguards, here is an illustration of the shield. Use the separate "Add to Cart" button below the main assembly selection options for addition of the full coverage pickguard shield. If you select this full coverage pickguard shield then your pickguard will not have any copper foil shielding.

Body Ground Connection:  Most of the modern American Strat® bodies (not vintage re-issue Strat's) have a ground wire connection inside the conductive paint shielded control cavity that is fastened down to the body with a small wood screw.  Click here for an illustration of this body ground connection. Most Mexican Strat® bodies we have encountered do not have this body ground connection.  Unless your bodies control cavity is shielded and you plan on connecting a ground wire from the electronics to the shielded control cavity then select "No" for this option. If you select YES for the "Body Ground" option and do not have the solder lug (ring eyelet) and mounting screw to attach this wire to your body, then you can add it to your order here -->
