As always, I’m open to offers on the below, but looking online, I think the prices seem fair.

Priced individually below, or or all 3 for £30 delivered.

 

 

Genuine Fender Single Ply White Scratchplate (8 hole)

£15 delivered

Taken from my Classic 50s Player Strat when I decided to convert it into a HSS config.

Scratchplate in fantastic condition as it only sat on the guitar for 2 or 3 months.

I see GAK have these for over £40 for some bizarre reason, which seems utterly ridiculous to me!

Third Party HSS 3-Ply White Scratchplate (11 hole)

£9 delivered

Great condition but now surplus to requirements as my US strat is now back to SSS config.

Third Party, 3-Ply Pearloid Scratchplate – HSS (11 hole)

A nice scratchplate – HSS, 11 hole and still has the plastic on it.

    Bad news.

    Fender scratchplates do not usually come with a location lug hole for small Asian pots. Also, genuine Fender tort and MOTO scratchplates are four-ply (the fancy layer over white/black/white) rather than three.

    Hmm that's interesting - I bought the pearloid and the other HSS plate several years ago, but I can't recall ever buying a non-genuine part, unless I got taken for a mug on Ebay perhaps..  The SSS one is 100% Fender.

    Anyway, with your comments in mind, I'll revise the ad - thanks for the info!

    There are several eBay Shops who stock third party parts supposedly made to exactly fit genuine Fender instruments. I have one for a Squier VM Telecaster Custom, supplied by a vendor in Scotland, made in their own facility. That has the small pot locator lug holes too.

    Indeed, it is. From the same Mexican factory that makes the majority of 'guards for MIA and MIM instruments. 

    If you offer your three 'guards up to each other, their outlines ought to be identical but will not be. Regardless of the fastening screw count, seven holes ought to align. Inevitably, some of those seven will not. 

    On the two mystery 'guards, the screw holes on the upper edge, between the neck and centre pickup cut-outs, cannot seem to decide whether to follow the early Sixties pattern or the revised mid Sixties pattern. They fail to comply to either pattern. Result - the body wood of your Stratocaster probably has more holes than a Golf course.
