    Default Replacement HSH strat pickguards?!

    With pics!

    I bought myself a very, very cheap Squier Strat today (the Affinity type). I need an HSH pickguard, but for some reason can't find any in the UK, and I really don't want to spend much on this. The guitar itself only cost me £30!
    Does anyone know of a low cost HSH guard I can get (white), OR, how hard would it be to just cut the humbucker holes in the existing one myself?

    Never mind. I'm just gonna cut the holes in the existing pickguard myself. Cheaper, and saves any hassle of trying to line up holes and crap like that.

    Only 21 frets too FFS?! I'm a 24 fret man!

    Cheers Matt. I notice the pickguard on the guitar is already cracked near the screw holes. It's not a big deal but bears out your word of caution when cutting.
    I'm just gonna mark it and use a stanley knife/drill. The holes don't even need to be neat and tidy so I'm just gonna give it a bash.

    do you already have pickups to put in the neck? cause you could use Lil buckers like the GFS L'il killers.
    You can run over a Tele with a pickup truck, pick it up - and it'll still play out of tune
