    I'm looking for loaded pickguards for Fender Stratocaster in Germany, but I can't find anywhere that sells them. Any Germans here know of a custom shop?

    Oh, I'm looking for a hard rock/metal type of setup. Maybe Seymour Duncan JB. I usually solder myself but I want 500k pots too and that would mean a lot of time

    Well, the holes on the new pick guard don't exactly line up with holes on the body. But they're close. So close that I can't drill new holes because the new ones will make the old ones bigger. The top 4 screws holes line up fine, but the whole bottom half is just a hair off. Thought I could manage but when I pull the push/pull pot the pick guard bends up. The TremBucker pickup in the new pickgaurd won't fit into the old pick guard and the pickup screw holes are off. JEEZE....
    Any ideas?
