I have my wife's old arbor strat laying around and find it is a fun change of pace from my usual tele and 335 combo. It has a seriously small neck and feels pretty good to play. My only gripe is the pickups are pretty crappy, so I've been looking for a low cost option as this is a pretty cheap guitar anyways. I ran across the cheap loaded pickguards on stratosphere for like 40ish bucks, I just wanted to see if anyone else has tried these. If so what were your thoughts. I typically play a mix of country, rock, and blues.
