Item #ELITE-HSS-PG Customized Pickguard For The Fender® American Elite HSS Strat®
Customized Genuine Fender® Pickguards Or Our Own Custom Manufactured Acrylic Pickguards

Give your 2016-2017 Fender® American Elite HSS Strat® a new look with one of our replacement pickguards. You no longer have to be stuck with a mint green or tortoise shell pickguard that Fender® uses to build the American Elite Strat®.

In 2016 Fender® introduced the new American Elite Strat®, but unfortunately they only offer them with a Mint Green or Tortoise Shell pickguard.  This is where we come in and can customize any genuine Fender® pickguard to fit this new Elite HSS Strat® or we can fabricate one of our custom manufactured Black or White Acrylic 1 Ply 0.120" pickguards that have the Rounded and Polished Edge just like those we use to build our complete Gilmour style Black Strat® pickguard assemblies. 

We do NOT use any cheap import pickguards where you will have compatibility issues, only true genuine Fender and true Fender® spec with our custom manufactured Acrylic pickguards.

The American Elite Strat® has a spoke wheel truss rod adjuster located at the heal of the neck which requires a special feature in the pickguards neck pocket cut-out, so we have created a special routing jig to perfectly create this unique feature in any pickguard.

The Fender® American Elite HSS Strat® has the push button "Passing Lane" switch located in-between the two tone controls. We can locate this switch in this original location or we can relocate it to the position depicted in the photographs to the right which we feel is a better location, this is referred to the "Alternate" location in the option selections below.  No modifications, re-wiring or soldering needed if you select to relocate this switches location, however it will require a little moving of the wires around the switch mounting block. We will secure this switches mounting block to the back side of the pickguard. You will only need to un-mount the switch from your original pickguards switch mounting block by the removal of 2 screws and remount the switch into place on the new pickguard.

The shielding on the two Acrylic pickguards that we manufacture will have control region only copper foil shielding.  All the other pickguards which are genuine Fender® will have full coverage aluminum foil shielding.

All of the pickguards offered here are ONLY for the 2016-2017 Fender® American Elite HSS Strat® that has the Shawbucker bridge pickup and N4 pickups in the middle and neck positions.  Our custom manufactured Acrylic HSS Elite Strat® pickguards have the bridge Humbucker pickup cut-out specifically dimensioned for the slightly shorter in length Shawbucker only.  Most of Fender's® other Humbucking pickups are approximately 0.10" longer.
