thanx for the advice Reverend-Me, but my strat is already blue. it's a mix of light blue and a surf green. not at all what it looked like online when i bought it, but still a cool color. and thank you Matt420740, however i'm looking more for a pickguard that is a bit more rounded off in the pickup cavity. i plan to install a seymour duncan invader in there, and there would be too much of a gap in the corners with that pickguard you showed me.

thats a fairly standard humbucker route.

Get that single-humbucker pickguard, a Seymour-Duncan invader to start. Wire just that pickup, the volume, and badaboom.

Go to guitarfetish.com and get a $20 pearloid 'guard and find a Duncan Performer at gc or somewhere. for $30. $50 later, you have a Tom DeLonge strat.

Edit:
I have a performer and I might do this to my squier just to up the look. Performer does sound good for how cheap it is.

The fretboard is dry because it is more than likely made in China.

I wonder how he came to this conclusion.
