If you're looking for a quick and easy way to upgrade your Stratocaster's sound, then the fully loaded T3 pickguard from AweSome Guitars is definitely worth considering. Not only does it come with a range of custom switching options, but it's also incredibly easy to install. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to install the Awesome fully loaded T3 pickguard upgrade on your Stratocaster:
Step 1 - Required Tools: Before you begin, gather your screwdriver and a wire stripper or cutter.
Step 2 - Remove the Old Pickguard: Simply unscrew the screws holding the old pickguard in place, and carefully lift it off the guitar. Once removed, cut the wires to the output jack and ground to the body or tremolo claw.
Step 3 - Connect to the Output Jack: The next step is to connect the ground wire, the groundwire to the output jack and the ground wire attached to your AweSome upgrade. You need to strip the end of the wires back (approximately ¼ of an inch). You can then use the wire nut or wire crimp that is included in your AweSome upgrade.
Step 4 - Install the New Pickguard: Place the Awesome fully loaded T3 pickguard in the same position as the old pickguard, and screw it in place.
Step 5 - Install Your Strings and Tune Your Guitar
: Plug it into your amplifier, and make sure that everything is working correctly. If you notice any problems, double-check your wire connections.
