The Hosco '59 8 Hole Stratocaster Pickguard Shielding/Grounding Plate is in the vintage Fender style, rather than having the modern adhesive sheet, a thicker aluminium plate is mounted between the controls and the underside of the scratchplate to ground the controls and help shield the electronics from noise (no wiring necessary as it will ground to the pots). The shielding plate with the 8 mounting hole design was introduced in 1959 replacing the smaller electronics cavity only plate introduced in 1957 and was relatively quickly replaced with the 11 hole design (both 11 hole screw position styles are available from us as separate items), the plate has cut outs for the three single coil pickups, lever switch, three control knobs and all mounting screws. Simply flip the plate over to fit to a left handed guitar.
