Item # 5011 OverDrive Custom Guitar Works Custom Built Fully Loaded Complete Strat® Pickguard Assembly
Fender® N3 Noiseless Pickup Set

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.

 Includes everything ready to drop in to your favorite Strat® by simply hooking up the hot wire (audio) and ground wires.  Includes genuine Fender® N3 Noiseless pickup set, genuine Fender® pickguard, knobs, switch tip along with top quality CTS potentiometers, Sprague Orange Drop tone capacitors and a CRL pickup selector switch. 

The standard 11 hole pickguards are fully shielded as they come from Fender. The '62 vintage and '57 vintage pickguards require a separate aluminum pickguard shield which is to be added extra if so desired. Use separate "Add to Cart" buttons found below for addition of these pickguard shields.

We offer a few assembly selection options for your pickguard to appeal to your particular Strat® body color.

Fender® N3 Noiseless Stratocaster® pickups deliver the best of modern tonal engineering while maintaining that unmistakable Fender® sound. Designed to remove hum and preserve single-coil tone and dynamics, each pickup is tailored to its position (neck, middle and bridge) and uses different alnico 3, 2 or 5 magnets to achieve its individual sonic character. The new unique core design and staggered-length pole pieces get the distinctive glassy sparkle and bell-like chime. Recommended for all music types in any situation; live or in the studio.

Important Note:  If you are selecting your pickguard assembly to be built with one of the '62 vintage pickguards or '57 vintage pickguard they are unshielded as provided by Fender. To have the genuine Fender® aluminum '62 pickguard shield or '57 control area shield installed please add it separately below using the appropriate "Add to Cart" button.  The '62 vintage aluminum pickguard shield is a full pickguard coverage shield.  The '57 vintage aluminum pickguard shield is a control area only shield.  These shielding's are specific and authentic to how they were originally built by Fender® during the respective era.

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 -->
