I'm thinkig about puting a anodized gold pickguard on my sunburst strat but I've read lots of things about some deffects they might have. I'm not worried about tone - I'm not that kinda guy with electric instruments. And I think I'll put new pickups too... But I've read bad stuff about grounding , hum , and other noise issues. Plus , I've never changed a strat pickguard - in fact I've never took the pickguard off of my strat. I don't understand anything about electronic related stuff so I need help. - Anyone here have a sunburst with rosewood neck and anodized gold pickguard? I've only found pics of strats with maple necks. Here's one from a TGP member: Thanks.
