This replacement pickguard is made to fit the 1954-present USA or 2002-present Made In Mexico Fender® Telecaster®. This pickguard is available in either a 5 hole or 8 hole configuration. We have also included the option to change the neck pickup (upcharge) or remove the mounting holes based on menu selections. While many manufacturers may make a similar model instrument, this does not mean each pickguard of this type is interchangeable.

Perfect fit for Baja Telecaster
I bought this to replace the single-ply pickguard on a 2017 Fender MIM 50's Baja Telecaster. I don't think I'm the only person that had one of those pickguards warp, and mine was to the point where I could almost fit a finger under the gap. I ordered the 5-screw bakelite and it's a perfect drop on fit, tight around the neck and control plate. If you've ever ordered a cheaper chinese replacement, you know that they almost always need a little dremel finessing, so this was definitely worth the higher cost. The only two negatives I have are: 1) I still had to debur around the pickguard to make the edges nice and smooth, and 2) the counter-sink holes were not quite deep enough for the (bought from WD also) pickguard screws to fit flush. But I didn't mind those small tasks and I could understand why they might not want to go too deep on the countersink. All in all, well worth it for a fantastic looking and perfect fit replacement. 4.5 stars rounded up.

Perfect fit, high quality material
I missed the part where it says that if you remove the plastic pick guard cover, the warranty is null and void. It seems reasonable to "see" if the new pick guard works before installing it... but alas... The screws did not line up correctly with my guitar's screw set.
It's all right, I'll just give it to some guitar repair folks I know... I'm sure that they'll find a nice home for it.
The package arrived promptly... it was well packed, though you folks are still using those horrible plastic peanut stuffers... I would consider other, "greener" means of packing...
Well made and a perfect fit
This is a well made and nice looking pickguard. It fits perfectly on my Fender Baja Telecaster using the existing screws.
A Little Let Down
Purchased the faux diamondplate cover for my new Fender Vintera 50's Modified Telecaster. Expected a charcoal color as pictured - actual cover is straight bright silver brushed aluminum finish. Not the compliment I was going for, but still an improvement over the boring, stock solid black. Screw holes (5) right on the money, but overall fit was uneven - tight spots around the neck pocket requiring a bit of fuss. This unevenness, coupled with the cracker-thin gauge of this particular guard, ultimately resulted in slight gappage in spots. Outline in relation to the body was noticeably off as well. On the flipside, my Strat stuff I bought last year was very good. WD fills plenty of guitar needs, plus close to home, so I'll be back I'm sure.
Very nice pickguard
Fit MIM telecaster with only minor sanding to fit around after market control plate and a couple of screw holes needed reaming to prevent it from warping when tightened as this guard is nice and thin. Neither is detectable and to be expected with a pre-drilled guard not made specifically for this guitar. Overall very well made with a flawless finish right out of the box.
Quality as always!
I've ordered a number of WDMusic pickguards over the years and have never been disappointed. I've also ordered custom cut pickguards that fit perfectly and look great! The mirror finish looks like it's made of glass! Awesome job, WD!
Mirror Tele MIM Brad Paisley
I ordered the mirror pickguard to switch back and forth with my Paisley pickguard and it fit perfectly and came in quickly.

Beautiful. Well-crafted. Super heavy-duty 3-ply. Fits like a glove. Will definitely order from WD Music again!
Great product - Fast service!
Best color and style selection you'll find anywhere. I've been buying pickguards and parts from WD for years. Fit, finish, and service are always spot on. Can't go wrong here, 5 stars for sure!
Love my new pick guard. Really high quality and super fast shipping. Impressive.
Ordered this pickguard for my USA Tele and it fit perfectly. The white perloid color is great too, not too bright white and not too off white - it looks like pearl, which is the point of perloid. I love the pickguard and would recommend this product.
