I recently ordered a telecaster, and as always, i can't leave any of it stock, so among the after market parts and upgrades, i wanted a pickguard that really makes me stand out when playing live. i came across this, and for thirty dollars, you can't beat that. just the standard pickguard from fender, which is black or white only is way more expensive than this was. i was shocked at the quality. it's made of plastic but looks and feels metal. careful though, it fingerprints up very easily. over all looks amazing and will make your guitar pop, and make all your friends jealous.
