I got a single-ply black pick guard.
The screw pattern does not line up with either of my two Fender American Standard bodies (2012 and 2008). The most aggravating thing is they're close enough I can't just drill new holes. I could fill & drill but that seems ridiculous amount of work for something I bought to 'just fit'. Attached a picture so you can see what I mean.
The cutouts for pickups and switch are pretty good and holes align well with pickups I tested. The bridge cutout is good too. I think the neck cutout isn't 100% correct but it's hard to tell since I can't mount the thing properly.
Overall the fit & finish is fine, and for a new build I would probably have used this.
I don't know if they use a different process (person) for setup on the single versus 3-ply pgs -seems unlikely. I suspect there are some tolerance issues from Musiclily's source.
I bought this because I wanted to put a humbucker in my Squier Bullet Strat (circa ~2005). When I first mounted it I thought it was just poorly made because nothing fit, but apparently I just cannot count. My Squier Strat (and I'm sure some others as well) use a weird 10-hole pattern that is near impossible to find parts for. THIS WILL NOT FIT OUT OF THE BOX IF YOU HAVE A 10-HOLE STRAT.
With that being said, it is a VERY well made pickguard and the overall quality is INCREDIBLE for the price. If you are in the same situation as me, I suggest taking a dremel to the bridge cutout and re drilling your pickguard screws so you don't have to bend over backwards trying to find another pickguard that fits a 10-hole in the future.
This is a 5-star product, but I gave it 4-stars because the edges were a bit rough upon receiving it. Took only 30 seconds to clean up. Overall a great product and I would definitely recommend it in the future.
Took a chance ordering this for my 2013 MIM Fender Stratocaster, HSS. The screw holes actually line up perfectly, no problems there. The Single coil pickup slots also perfect. The Humbucking slot however, is about a 1/4" difference then the Fender one, WHICH IS NOT A PROBLEM because the cavity underneath can accommodate that slight shift. I almost didn't even try to put it on as its kind of a pain to swap them out, but I'm glad I did, as The Fender ones are $35. I think they have to make them with that slight discrepancy because Fender owns the patent on that design(?), but either way it fits and is really well made. 3 ply, looks great, fits, inexpensive. Good purchase!
