£14.06 - £15.95

8-hole Scratchplate to fit most USA, Mexican Telecasters and Squier model Telecasters

In 1969, Fender changed the design of their scratchplates. Moving away from 5 fixing screw holes to 8. They'd come to realise that the original 5 holes weren't enough to keep the plate from lifiting away from the body in certain areas.

Mounting holes for the neck pickup were also introduced, thus making pickup height adjustment much easier (previously the scratchplate would need to be removed to do this)

We've modelled our 8 hole scratchplates on this more modenr design, but with a wider variety of colours and a choice of single or 3-ply.

All our scratchplates are fully shielded on the reverse, to help reduce hum.


3 ply scratchplates: 2.4mm thick

1 ply scratchplates: 2.0mm thick

    Picked up the white pearl for my Telecaster build, fits perfectly and so much cheaper than a genuine Fender part.

    Telecaster 8 hole pickguard 3 ply. ( Tortoiseshell finish )

    Posted by alan robertson on 28th Aug 2018

    I have recently bought two of these and fitted one to a 2008 American Telecaster, natural finish which had a vintage white ( cream colour ) pickguard. I fitted the second one to a Sonic Red Mexican player Telecaster which I recently bought and had a plain white pickguard.. Extremely easy to fit, Took a measurement on a piece of card of neck pickup height, Loosened off strings, undid the eight pickguard screws, Unscrewed the the two pickup adjustment screws, lifted and slid out the pickguard and pickup, Replaced pickup into new pickguard and slid into place. Had to slightly undo the the top screw in in control plate nearest pickguard and slid into place and refitted the eight screws, adjusted pickup to marked height, Removed pickguard covering film, re tuned strings and ready to go. Took approximately 20 minutes per guitar and they both look amazing. Be careful not to over tighten pickguard screws or you will get small indentation around the screw heads. Really pleased with the results and has completely transformed the guitars. Pickguards seem to be well made and pretty solid and holes are well aligned and perfectly match original pickguards and are much cheaper than the Fender original part pickguards. Really pleased with the result.
