Whilst you are paying somewhat more for this than other after-market replacement pick-guards, you get exactly what you pay for! The guard comes with a protective film so there will be no annoying little marks/scratches on it when you install it. The triple laminate construction is really tough and the angled edges, showing the white pinstripe, really make a difference. All screw holes were 100% precise to the existing ones on my Jazz bass, so no messing around as I have experienced when I foolishly bought inferior quality products. The design really complemented the overall look of my bass, stylish and contemporary! Don't waste your hard earned cash on anything less than Fender original spares! Highly recommended.
