  • MIJ Strat pic....look! Improvement?

    I think so.

    Changed out the pickguard, pup covers and knobs. Still need to get a doohickey for the pickup selector that is black.

    before


    after



    Also wax potted the pickups. No more feedback problems. She may be a keeper.

                I would still keep the white knobs and covers with the black pickguard.

                        Overall, I prefer the white plastic, but the black adds a nice touch for sure.

                            Those colors look good! I did the same thing for my nephew! I bought him a $100 red Squire guitar from CL and pimped it out for him with a black pickguard.
