This pickguard has been custom wired with a 5 way switch, volume pot, 2 tone controls and the Fender Hot "Noiseless" Pickups with TBX Tone Control and Active Mid-Boost. It features a warm and punchy neck pickup tone with a bluesy feel, and a bridge pickup that screams at high gain. The clean tone is clear and very full. These "Noiseless" pickups deliver the best definition and sensitivity that has ever graced the Strat. This loaded pickguard also comes with TBX Tone Control. The TBX invokes a dramatic tone shift: super muted and bassy like a jazz guitar when turned one way, and bright and crystal-clear the other. It's very impressive.
