    Product FAQ's

    These are frequently asked questions about our Prewired Telecaster Thinline ’72 Pickguard. If you have a question that you don't see listed here, click "Ask A Question" in the Quick Links section above.

    • Which Tone Cap do I select?

      We always recommend 0.022mfd as the Tone Cap value. A larger capacitance value means more roll-off, a lower capacitance value means less roll-off.

    • Can I return this pickguard?

      No – all pickguards are built to order, and are non-returnable.

    • Can you coil-split the Wide Range humbuckers?

      While it’s possible, we don’t recommend it. There are two main reasons why:

      1. The Wide Range Humbucker consists of two low-wind coils. These coils by themselves don’t produce a usable output.
      2. Half of the Coil’s magnets are under the cover, without the ability to adjust them easily. This will yield an unbalanced tone.
