    Default Pickguard Quality

    Hey guys,

    I'm gonna put an HB in the bridge of my strat, so I need a new pickguard. Are the $15 pickguards sold on ebay inferior in quality to the $40 fender branded ones? I don't want some flimsy piece of crap, but I don't want to waste money either...

    Thanks!

    Mike

    Well, thereŽs no REAL difference in teh material quality as far as IŽve seen, the differences are in compatibility and tooling precision for the most part... But IMO they can sometimes warrant a 30$ difference, depending on how picky you are.

    But given a Fender guard and say a Warmoth guard that are otherwise identical in every regard: IŽd take the cheaper one

    +1 if it's standard color guard I'd spend the extra money and go w/ Warmoth or Terrapin.
