Description Technical Specs Wiring / Instructions / Customisation

The evolution of the "Fat Strat®” is a bit of a grey area, but the earliest examples began to appear as aftermarket modifications in the mid-60s, but we don’t see humbuckers as standard on any Fender® until 1972, and the Stratocaster® didn’t see a humbucker bridge fresh from the factory until the late eighties/early nineties at the very earliest!

Other than the obvious addition of the new humbucker bridge pickup, the basic plate stayed pretty much the same as the post 1963 - Modern single coil version, and again, it’s likely that most Stratocaster® built in Mexico and the USA will take this plate, as will some of the more recent Squiers®, but be aware – it’s still worth checking that you’ve got the room in the pickup cavity to accommodate the larger bridge pickup.

This plate is designed to fit Fender® and Squier® Guitars including the Stratocaster® built from 1963 until today, and any subsequent reissues that are built to those specifications, however, please note, these are not official Fender® parts.

Whilst we endeavour to ensure that this pickguard will fit the guitars stipulated within this description, there is no guarantee that your guitar conforms to these standards so it is advised to check the Technical specifications to ensure the correct fit.
