I want to put a new pickguard on my Fender Mexican Strat. I have the exact replica pickguard that i want to be put on. Now heres the question.. Does it cost alot to have the pickguard put on at a place like guitarcenter? How hard of a process is it to change the pickguard?


Thank you

you should be able to do it yourself as its very easy, i'm sure a shop wouldn't charge you alot for it though ... might even do it for free ....

I don't think he was serious.

$40 aint that outrageous, well i mean it is, but think about it. taking a pick guard apart and putting it all onto another pick guard can take some time, thats a lot of screws. so if they charge by the hour that could easily be $40.

however, simply taking the time to read up and do it urself would be worth it

sir, i would like to inform you that you are now my favorite UGer. Not only did you use the word y'all, which is native to my homeland, but you correctly punctuated it using the apostrophe.

The volume and tone knobs will come off if you use two flathead screwdrivers as levers to push them off of the posts. Use the pickguard as a fulcrum to push off of. Unscrew the screws attaching the pickguard to the body and remove it. (You'll need the strings removed, of course). Take it off, and unscrew all the components. Now, being careful not to break any solder joints, screw all of the components onto the new pickguard.

If you have any issues, please bring them up.
