Ilitch Pick Guard Noise Canceling Systems for Strat (PGNCS-S)
Enjoy the chiming single coil pickup tone

The PGNCS-S is a hum canceling system built into the pickguard. Strat style guitars with a standard 11 hole pickguard can be retrofitted with the PGNCS-S. This design is in expansion of our original backplate hum canceling system for Strat style guitars. It uses an extremely low impedance coil assembly that effectively eliminates hum while keeping the true single coil tone intact.

  • Unscrew the original guitar pickguard
  • Modify the pickup output wires to meet the schematic
  • Connect the PGNCS-S wires to the adjusting PCB and pickups
  • Assemble back the guitar and you are ready to play hum-free
