What a difference...
01.03.2015
... a piece of plastic can make!

Recently, I fitted 2 Custom Shop Strats with black pickguards.
Strat #1: '61 heavy relic, lake placid -
Strat #2: '60 'un-relic' (think Closet Classic w/out any checking), 2-tone sunburst.

#1 got a different manufacturer's guard: Thinner, and smaller(!) than the Fender-item.

On #2, the original Fender-guard fit like a glove, all holes in place just where they belong = easy job, perfect fit.

Interesting to note is, that the CS seems to actually use a (just a tad) smaller template, or else re-routes the outer edge/rim oftheir "green"-guards, since the new Fender-guard is actually a bit larger all-around...
Moreover, if you like that "sunken in" look for your screws, you'll have to re-drill just a tiny bit: This IS a new guard, and "out of the box", your screw-heads will fit eactly flush with the guard's surface.
Material is the same as used by the CS, same thickness of layers & overall (yea, different colour...;o) - it lends itself to aging equally well.

The effect on the look of my guitars is quite drastic, and honestly, I love the look!

If YOUR Stratocaster has a white/green/tortoise/whatever "non-black" guard... why not just order a black one and check the difference yourself?

VERDICT: Recommended***

(and one more time: Thumbs up to the team at "the big T": Overnight delivery, perfectly packaged. Thank you folks!)

he small premium paid for the original, will save you worries worth much more (imho).
Just watch for the screw-hole top/between forn- & middle pup
