Looking at some upgrades, this seems too good to be true @ $127
Sounds cheap for 920D stuff, what is it?
If you haven't tried an RRG, there's nothing better.
This one sold recently, but look at the pictures of the craftsmanship:
Second to none.
Ahhh...generic alnicos instead of the usual brand name pickups. They make good stuff, I'm sure its fine.
Not sure what it is you're looking at but I installed one of the 920 D TexMex loaded pickguards in my 06 Fender Standard and absolutely love it. That being said I went a lil cheaper on my korean gold label strat and got one of the Dragonfire Texas blues gaurds( comparable to Texas Specials) and it is pretty dang close in sound. The Dragonfires are extremely hot though they clean up well when you dial the volume down. All in all I like the 920D wired TexMex's better but ymmv. Dont forget about the Rockin R ones. They are probably your best bang for your buck. Better components and wiring than Dragonfire and cheaper than 920 D. Just putting that out there. Check Reverb for those.
The quality of the RRG's is unsurpassed ... at half the price of the 920D.

Great guy. Amazing craftsman. Priced much more reasonably than 920D. All my Squiers have RRG's.
I have purchased a couple of their harnesses but never a fully loaded pickguard. They are way too much. Last one I did was a David Gilmour harness. They are high quality for sure. Here is the last one I did.
I have never seen anything that they sell that seemed worth the price to me.
From the reverb link, that looks to me about 65-75 dollars in parts.
So if you cant solder, it might be worth it.
I could get it done for less then 50, having parts in bulk and what not. ( i like me some artec pickups too)
I bought a Tele 920 harness from Sigler music on ebay. It was basic wiring, high quality and exactly what I wanted. Find out what you getting before you buy... example: treble bleed, loaded tone pot circuit.
Thanks, all. I have contacted RRG.
You won't be disappointed. His work is absolutely amazing. I'm addicted ... badly. All my Squiers and my only MIM have RRG's in them. Close your eyes, cover the logos, and you won't be able to tell the difference.
I talked to Mike this morning, great guy!
I've had really good luck with 920D. Love the products and workmanship.
Those are genuine Fender Tex Mex Pickups like in the Jimmie Vaughan Strat.....
The quality of 920D is unsurpassed in my book - and not cheaper than RRG because when Fender 57/62 pickups were $199.99 new for the set of 3, I got a full loaded pickguard from 920D with those 57/62's, CTS pots, oak-grigsby 5-way, and .033uf capacitor......for $199.99 and free shipping......
I don't think RRG can give you a full loaded pickguard for the same price as the pickups only....
I also have a Lace Sensor / Clapton Boost loaded PG from 920D.....worth every penny....
So for a casual player, would you spend the $127 for the 920D or $65 for the RRG?
