    Here is the oddball pix with the guitar being very near completion, It still needs string trees and a switch tip. It is the pink burst. 2 pickup and 8 hole guard from a 2008 Bullet Strat.
    The blue guitar is a nearly finished MIM Fender Stratocaster I call Ice Blue Burst.

    Nice. I'm liking the pink 'burst you're done … very effective but to be honest the tort guard on the blue seems wrong to me … mint or perhaps parchment would look great.

    I just found this thread... I’m VERY intrigued with the 2-pickup guard. Did you make it, or have it made somewhere? I never use the middle pickup on my Strats, N+B in series is ma favorite strat sound. Plus, I’ve been itching to try out the Ritchie Blakemore wiring mod on a strat.... Plus the Pink Burst is something you don’t see every day. Thumbs up!

    I found a Squier Strat in a pawn shop with this 2 pickup setup. I have never seen another like it and I have searched extensively. It had a plywood body and since have moved the 2 pickup set back to the original and I have put a 3 pickup alnico set on the pink burst.
    Here is the original put back together. It is from China about 2005.

    There were no extra pickguard holes in the body from another pickguard having been on there ? So this picguard is original to the body ... doesn't look like standard Squier stuff, maybe the neck and body came from different units ?

    It is all original, 8 holes in the body. some I have seen have the output jack in the third hole normally used for a tone pot. this one has the inset output jack and only 2 pots and a tele like 3 pos switch. It is an anomaly.

    Was it maybe a test piece for a new factory run, or some other-than-USA model that accidentally made it here? “The world... may never know”. It’s cool, though.
