My bad left out the meat of the question!!Had a brain fart. Can the 1 ply pick guard "which comes standard" be replaced w/ a 3 ply pick guard, or will there be some height issues here, if the 3 ply is not standard on the Fender Squire Affinity series Strat

It's not a problem. I replace the 1 ply that came of my 57AVRI with a 3-ply. No issues.

Yeah--thickness is not a problem. <br /> <br /> Be advised, though, you may need to drill a few new holes in the body because not all pickguards are created equal. Even a real-deal Fender replacement 'guard might need to be fitted to the body because the mounting screw locations in the original and replacement 'guards may be slightly off.<br /> <br /> If any screw hole in more than about 1/64" off, you'll need to plug the existing hole in the body and re-drill. Forcing a pickguard to fit always results in the plastic buckling in the direction you're forcing it.
