Why would you want it? With a Strat, the pickguard acts as a mounting ring. If you really wanted to do it, you'd need to pull the poickguard, and mount all 3 pickups directly to the body, as well as somehow fill and drill or cover the big ugly hole where the controls are.

Also, putting eighteen question marks doesn't make people want to answer you any more than it would if you structured your sentence in a proper coherent fashion. I'd guess you're French, but even still.

Now that's something I've never seen before. Looks kinda cool.

lots of guys do it to their strats when they're used to having that ring to plant their hand on, some guys i know even put them on as dummyrings either for looks or feel..

well the reaosn is i cut through the pickguard to fit a humbucker on my squier mini and with the exacto i sometimes slip and slighty go further than the pickup ...leaving a few scratches ...


a ring would cover it all and leave no skratches + it would hide the holes that were there before .

thanksx for the info .. ill put one for sure .
