Hey there. Any thoughts on where to buy from? Aftermarket vs. Fender?

does it matter quality wise or is it about price ?

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.

I went through Warmoth when I needed one. I am very happy with the the pickguard and the service was as expected. Warmth also has a better variety of products available.

Nothing wrong with Fender products though.

Flip side question: is it unwise to replace an anodized aluminum pickguard?
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.

I stick with Fender, they are not expensive, I have gone to others sources because I wanted a custom design but the Fender one are always spot on if you need a replacement, but if you put a 2022 board on a 62 you would devalue it by thousands. :confused:
