hello, im changing the pickguard off my american standard strat, and noticed the old one has a thin layer of aluminum on the bottom of it, while my new one does not. Does this affect the sound of the instrument at all, or is it not something i should worry about? If so, could someone give me a rundown on how to equip my new guard with it? thanks for the help.

It's a meager attempt at shielding it. Get some copper tape and put it on the back of your pickguard. Same effect. The instrument will work without it. Actually, you should get a goodly amount of copper tape and properly shield the entire cavity of your Strat. This will really help reduce the amount of single coil buzz you get.

Inside a standard Strat? Ha! They put a postage stamp size of foil on the underside of the pickguard over the volume control and call that "shielding"
