    Default Warmoth question

    What is the metal stuff (foil?) on the back side of a pickguard? Do the Warmoth ones come with this stuff? I need to fix my Strat (it's completely gutted). I bought a ToneZone pup to put in the bridge position. I just want it wired to the output jack. Just the pup and a knob.

    The foil on the back of the pickguard is shielding. I assume the Warmoth ones come with shielding, but I am not sure. I am ordering a pickguard from them this week, so I'll ask.

    I gutted my Strat, too!

    Cool. I gutted mine, painted it kinda Almond color I think. Saw a pic of Jimi Hendrix's Strat and it looks similar ('cept for the rosewood fretboard) and I want mine kindal like his. Mine, however, actually is a lefty and won't have the 3 single coils. Just the ToneZone. Dyin to hear what it sounds like thru my "cheapass" Crate GX-15R amp. I also stuck a piece of heavy plastic in the tremolo cavity on the back of the guitar to block the bridge from moving. More stability.

    Check out this link.

    Just get any pickguard, and follow the instructions on the above link, and you will be better off for it.

    Cool, thankx. I'll have a pro put the pickup and such in, but this is a good thing to read for future reference.
