Okay, I'm interested in throwing on a new pickguard on my Sunburst Strat. So, to replace the standard white I was thinking of buying this:

but there is another product that's $20 bucks cheaper but I'm not sure if the color will go good with it or not. I'm looking to buy the red from this group:

http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Musicians-Gear-3Single-Coil-Pearloid-Pickguard?sku=360687

but again there's a problem. In the group shot, the red looks a darker brown which would go good with the sunburst, but in the single picture shot it is a lot more red. Anyone know if that's just the lighting making the difference between the two pictures? Or if anyone has any other suggestions for a good color to throw on suggest away.

The one thing about buying PG copies is that the holes almost always never line up. Then, depending on the Fender Strat models, the PG hole placements are sometimes different. Then, there's the '50s-style (8 holes) and the 11-hole version.

Check out the placements of the holes for the 2 you linked:

yeah i wouldn't buy anything thats fender on things like that because you will end up paying much much more for the same thing so go with the second one

The fender one's middle left hole is higher than on mine. The 2nd one matches up fine. I thought the middle right one(near the pickup switch) was the only that really ever got moved around but I guess not. But I'm still concerned about what color I should get then. That color difference between the two pictures is what originally stopped me and still is. I could just go straight for purple. :X

With the copy, you'll have to drill new holes.

deet, go to eBay for Fender PGs ... you can get them really cheap.
