The Hosco '63 11 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 scratchplate and the guitar body to ground the controls and help shield the entire electronics cavity and pickup cavity wiring channels from noise (no wiring necessary as it will ground to the pots). This the modern version of Fender's 11 mounting hole design with the bass side middle mounting screw positioned closer to the middle pickup (the original position from the 8 hole design) was introduced in early 1963 replacing the 11 hole design with the screw positioned more centrally between the middle and neck pickup and is the design still used to this day (both vintage 11 hole and 8 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.
