SoCal Strat HH (Humbucker Humbucker) Pickguard, Choice of Colors

Brand New Double Hum (H-H) Stratocaster Charvel Style Guard, Fits Fender (see below for fit notes)

Product Description & Information

This Humbucker-Humbucker pickguard is cut for one humbucker at the bridge and one humbucker at the neck. It features a superior shielded electronics area with an 11-hole mounting pattern to fit U.S.A. Fender Standard Strats and MIM (Made in Mexico) 2002 & newer Standard Strats.

So-Cal pickguards are specialized Double Humbucker guards with rounded corner pickup holes (NOTE that these guards will not work with covered or active humbuckers). We offer this Hum-Hum guard in three styles: Bare, Classic, and Custom.

This pickguard is the SoCal CUSTOM style of guard and allows personalization for your unique style. Our Custom offering stays true to the tradition of the SoCal Classic with a single volume hole but with special customization options for your new guard. We offer the added bonus of pot position options as well as your choice of switch hole styles for increased personalization and playability. Just tell us how you would like your new pickguard sent to you and we are happy to accommodate your preference. Please check out the provided reference image for options.

So Cal CUSTOM Option Features
Your choice of switch option guard drilling:

  • None (left blank for you to drill or cut as you choose)
  • 1 Switch Hole for 3 Way Toggle Style Switch drilled in Position 2.5
  • 2 Mini Switch Holes drilled for you as shown in the provided reference image

Your choice of a single pot hole as follows:

  • P0 – Position #0 – NO Hole (undrilled – you drill where you like)
  • P1 – Position #1 – Standard Strat Volume Hole
  • P1.5 – Position #1.5 – Slight Offset between Position #1 and Position #2
  • P2 – Position #2 – Standard Strat Middle Tone
  • P3 – Position #3 – Standard Strat Bottom Tone
  • P4 – Position #4 – Offset (may require extra routing)

IMPORTANT NOTES regarding hole placement options. Thank you for your attention to these important details.

  • Position #4 may not fit in a standard Strat route and additional routing may be required with this selection.
  • Mirror guards may be more difficult to drill successfully; these may require extra skill and patience. Drilling mirror guards is not recommended or novices.
  • Hole Placement - Be aware of your knob circumference and hole placement as some hole options are too close together to allow adjacent standard size pot placement. Your choices for hole positions are your own and not our responsibility. We have no knowledge or control over the knobs you choose to install. Please think ahead! If you are unsure, the safest option would be to go with SoCal Classic styling.
  • You can use a full-size or mini-size volume pot with any of these choices/options.

Purchase Notes

Please allow and expect color variation due to photo and monitor settings as well as natural product variance. Please note that mirror guards are partly made of an acrylic material designed to protect the mirror finish which will reflect your unique surroundings.

Be sure to inspect your new guard carefully upon receipt for any shipping damage, fit on your guitar, color, and general appearance. DO NOT remove the protective film, modify or install the guard if it does not meet with your approval for any reason. We pledge to address any concerns you have prior to installation. Note that we do not recommend installation using power tools as these can put too much force on the pick-guard and cause damage; this is especially true with mirror guards. If everything is in order upon receipt, simply install carefully and then slowly peel off the protective covering to enjoy!
