I've changed pickguards for 5 strats into wood pickguards so far. The sound and overtones improves so much especially with high notes that I'll never have a plastic pickguard on a strat or strat copy. I've done it enough to know wood is an improvement anytime.

I have seen unboxing reviews where they're alright though. Just no quality control.

Ha, I bought a Glarry a few years back and had the same problem with the frets. They felt gritty and bending strings felt unnatural. Needed a fret polish bad. I gave the neck away, used the loaded pickguard somewhere else , and still have the body.

Yea, figured that much, so I ended up giving her my Les Paul jr. instead :)

One might be better off getting a Strat from a pawn shop or on Facebook marketplace. I got this brand new from Glarry for 75$ shipped but had a rough time with the frets

Thanks for that recipe!

Thanks guys. JJ, Glarry guitar they are $75 shipped, heat gun to take finish off. Craft ply at any hardware or hobby store. Take the pickguard off the Glarry and stencil it. And Krylon paint + primer called satin sea glass. Kaish sells wooden knobs for around 10 for 2 knobs. Not too much to get one.
