    Instructions on how to install full pickguard assembly

    Hi guys -- i've been trying to find a simple set of instructions for this: I have to fully assembled pickguard assemblies that I want to sway in my two strats, just one to the other. Can anyone out there give me a simple set of instructions for this, what wires need to be cut and soldered where, etc? I know there are only a few -- just the output jack wires and I think the wire to ground to the tremolo plate, etc. B

    There might be one more ground attached to shielding paint in the cavity if they're modern Strats. I haven't seen any tutorials. You can desolder the wires at the jack and vibrato claw or at the pots. I desolder them at the jack and vibrato claw. The pots don't need any more heat.

    You may also find that some screw holes don't match up and new holes are needed. If so, drill small pilot holes. Don't try to drive the screws in without pilot holes. They can break and lead to bigger issues.
