I bought an after market black pearloid. I got it because it was cheaper. It lasted about 6 or 7 years and the top laminate started pealing. I changed it out for a white pearloid about 3 years ago. Hopefully it’ll last longer.Hey there. Any thoughts on where to buy from? Aftermarket vs. Fender?
does it matter quality wise or is it about price ?
There was a post about that a little while ago. Everyone said they never had a problem with them, that there was no logical reason to think they’d be a problem. And obviously people that design guitars for Fender know what they are doing. If anything, they are the best shielded pickguards you could find.Flip side question: is it unwise to replace an anodized aluminum pickguard?
