Prewired Strat Pickguard FAQ's
Here are quick answers to common questions we get:
Can I return my pickguard?
No. Your pickguard is completely custom-built for you, so we cannot accept returns.
What warranty applies to the pickguard?
10 Years on our Pickups, 1 Year on electronics, parts, and pots.
What does the baseplate do?
The Baseplate adds a touch of power and output to the Bridge pickup. This mod is removable and is only available on certain models.
What does the Bright Switch mod do?
The Bright Switch modification adds a bit of clarity, brightness and output when you pull up on the push-pull modification. This mod only affects pickups installed with 250K pots, so it won’t work on our Steel Pole 43’s and High Outputs.
What does the Volume Kit do?
The Volume Kit (or Treble Bleed circuit) prevents your tone from getting darker when you roll your volume down.
Does my Pickguard come with Hardware?
Yes! We ship all pickguards with the screws needed to install your pickguard.
Do you sell Matching Backplates (Tremolo cover)?
Yes, we do! Simply check “Add matching backplate” in the “Options & Upgrades” box.

Reviews We Worked Hard For, and Are Proud Of
245 Genuine Reviews for Prewired Strat Pickguard
I ordered a Prewired Strat Pickguard (Woodstock pickups, Hybrid Stagger, Fralin wiring with the blender pot, 0.022mfd Film & Oil Cap, baseplate on the bridge pickup and volume kit) and I put this in my 2019 Fender American Ultra Strat. It took maybe 15 minutes to install…. I could never get into the nosieless pickups, just never sounded like I wanted it to, but the guitar played great. If you are on the fence about ordering an upgrade from Fralin (like I was for a long time), do yourself a favor and order today! Night and day for my strat, I absolutely love the way it sounds now. My only problem is that I’m going to need to replace the pickups in all my other guitars! A+, 100%, 5 stars, whatever the highest rating I can give… get some Fralins in your guitar!!
Put mustang blues specials in mim fender mustang – ?!
It has taken me a while to be in a position to review the prewired Strat pickguard I’d previously purchased because it was for a guitar I was assembling from parts, but having now put it all together, I’m pleased to say I’m absolutely delighted with my purchase! All of the pickups & wiring was really well put together and the pickups sound great and very powerful! I’m using them on a ‘strat-style’ electric 12-string and they work really well. The ‘blender’ option I selected, giving the option of either neck & bridge pickup together, or all 3 at once seems to work particularly well with the 12-string, with the latter being my favourite. The bridge-pickup with its optional metal baseplate sounds really good when playing through my amp’s distortion channel too – instant ‘Jimmy Page Stairway to Heaven Live’ sound! I was also very pleased with the ordering process via the Fralin website, with the ability to completely customise one’s order, including pickguard & pickup cover colours, adding a ‘treble-bleed’ to the volume, the aforementioned ‘blender’ control, etc. I can highly recommend Fralin without hesitation!
I’m predominantly a blues player playing 40+ years now. I got the Vintage Hot for the neck, Real ’54 for the middle, and Blues Special for the bridge for my 2012 American Standard Fender Strat. Each has their own unique characteristics, yet really balanced between all three. I find they compliment each other very well. I couldn’t be happier with the tone. I also have the Fralin Big T telecaster pickups I discovered on the Analogman site and a pre-wired telecaster control panel in my Fender telecaster. Truly amazing, as well. If and when I start gigging again these two guitars will be my go-to without question. Thank you, Fralin for all you do.
Thrilled with the results of my Strat build, mostly thanks to the ease, quality and tonal bliss of the Fralin pickups! I ordered a Real 54 neck, Blues Special middle and bridge. I emailed about compatibility and got a quick response. My order shipped very fast. Install was a breeze with the instructions. I’ll be using Fralin to overhaul my other guitar as well. Awesome products, awesome customer service!!!
