Just wondering if i can replace an 11 hole strat pick gaurd with an 8 hole pickgaurd. I am aware that 8 and 11 are 2 different numbers, but shouldnt the main screws match?

or can anyone show me where i can get an 11 hole black gloss finsh .09 thick strat gaurd?

Most of the holes on the 8-hole vintage Fender pickguard are in the same location as corresponding holes on the the 11-hole modern pickguard. But the hole nearest the selector switch is in a different location. You will have to drill a new hole there, or get an 8-hole "conversion" pickguard.

Go here ^ scroll down the page. Pictures, thousand words, blah, blah, blah.
