Product Description & Information

This Humbucker-Humbucker pickguard is cut for one humbucker at the bridge and one humbucker at the neck. It features a superior shielded electronics area with an 11-hole mounting pattern to fit U.S.A. Fender Standard Strats and MIM (Made in Mexico) 2002 & newer Standard Strats. This pickguard will not fit other guitars or styles and will not work with specialty sized pickups. It WILL NOT FIT “Squier” “Deluxe” “Light” any Artist Series or anything else other than “FENDER STANDARD” model guitars in the years and configuration specified above. Please contact us prior to purchase if you have any questions regarding fit.

So-Cal pickguards are specialized Double Humbucker guards with rounded corner pickup holes (NOTE that these guards will not work with covered or active humbuckers). We offer this Hum-Hum guard in three styles: Bare, Classic, and Custom.

This pickguard is the SoCal CUSTOM style of guard and allows personalization for your unique style. Our Custom offering stays true to the tradition of the So Cal Classic with a single volume hole but with special customization options for your new guard. We offer the added bonus of pot position options as well as your choice of switch hole styles for increased personalization and playability. Just tell us how you would like your new pickguard sent to you and we are happy to accommodate your preference. Please check out the provided reference image for options.

SoCal CUSTOM Option Features

Your choice of switch option guard drilling:

  • None (left blank for you to drill or cut as you choose)
  • 1 Switch Hole for 3 Way Toggle Style Switch drilled in Position 2.5
  • 2 Mini Switch Holes drilled for you as shown in the provided reference image

Your choice of a single pot hole as follows. 

  • P0 – Position #0 – NO Hole (undrilled – you drill where you like)
  • P1 – Position #1 – Standard Strat Volume Hole
  • P1.5 – Position #1.5 – Slight Offset between Position #1 and Position #2
  • P4 – Position #4 – Offset (may require extra routing)

IMPORTANT NOTES regarding hole placement options. Thank you for your attention to these important details.

  • Position #4 may not fit in a standard Strat route and additional routing may be required with this selection.
  • Mirror guards may be more difficult to drill successfully; these may require extra skill and patience. Drilling mirror guards is not recommended for novices.
  • Hole Placement - Be aware of your knob circumference and hole placement as some hole options are too close together to allow adjacent standard size pot placement. Your choices for hole positions are your own and not our responsibility. We have no knowledge or control over the knobs you choose to install. Please think ahead! If you are unsure, the safest option would be to go with SoCal Classic styling.
  • You can use a full-size or mini-size volume pot with any choice of pot hole.

Purchase Notes

Please allow and expect color variation due to photo and monitor settings as well as natural product variance. We have made an effort to provide a sample image best representing the color, pattern, or shading of this pickguard. Some colors or patterns are extremely difficult to accurately portray in pictures. If you are looking for a particular shade, color, or pattern or are trying to match an existing color or theme on your instrument, we do not recommend purchasing from our online store. We want you to be completely satisfied with your pickguard and thank you for understanding that we cannot guarantee a particular look. Guards may not look the same in your space compared with our shop where the pictures were created, depending on your monitor, environment, lighting, contrasting colors, individual perception, etc. Please note that mirror guards are partly made of an acrylic material designed to protect the mirror finish which will reflect your unique surroundings.

Be sure to inspect your new guard carefully upon receipt for any shipping damage, fit on your guitar, color, and general appearance. Your new pick guard will be shipped to you with a layer of protective film covering the guard surface. DO NOT remove the protective film, modify or install the guard if it does not meet with your approval for any reason. We are happy to process a return in accordance with our Return Policy so long as the guard is not installed or modified and the protective covering is intact. We do not offer exchanges or replacement parts. We pledge to address any concerns you have prior to installation. Note that we do not recommend installation using power tools as these can put too much force on the pick-guard and cause damage; this is especially true with mirror guards. If everything is in order upon receipt, simply install carefully and then slowly peel off the protective covering to enjoy!
