Great condition, hardly used - going for $250 fixed, no trades. It's $399.99 new at Swee Lee. http://www.sweelee.com.sg/Dimarzio-FG2108WA8-Billy-Corgan-Fender-Strat-Replacement-Pickguard.html

Product description:

"Featuring a BC-1 pickup in the neck, Chopper in the middle, and a BC-2 in the bridge, the Billy Corgan prewired pickguard lets you get a deep sound from the low strings without losing any punch, and won't muddy the sound when you play through high-gain amps. To accomplish this, DiMarzio lowered the frequency response of one of the coils in each pickup just enough to boost the bass while opening up the mids. The end results are the guitar pickups that are now in Billy's signature Strat. They do exactly what he wants in humbucking mode, and he's found they work really well in split mode as well.The BC-1 and BC-2When DiMarzio started working with Billy Corgan on the pickups for his signature Strat, they sent him several models to try out. He liked the Air Norton S in the neck, Chopper in the middle and Tone Zone S in the bridge. After playing them on several gigs, he asked for some changes in the neck and bridge pickups. He wanted a deeper sound from the low strings without losing any punch, and he didn't want the sound to get muddy with high-gain amps. To do this, DiMarzio lowered the frequency response of one of the coils in each pickup just enough to boost the bass while opening up the mids. The end results are the pickups that are now in Billy's signature Strat. They do exactly what he wants in humbucking mode, and he's found they work really well in split mode as well. BC-1 pickup is recommended for: All positions, especially neck.Tech Talk: The output and DC resistance specs of the DiMarzio BC-1 and DiMarzio BC-2 are very similar to those of the Air Norton S. The difference is in the tuning of the coils, and how this affects the way they interact with each other. It can be described as more of a "feel" than a sound difference - Billy's pickups seem to move more air.BC-2 pickup is recommended for: All positions, especially bridge.Tech Talk: The output and DC resistance specs of the DiMarzio BC-1 and DiMarzio"

TLDR: turns your Strat into a high gain, humbucker-style, rock machine. Step on a Big Muff fuzz, instant Siamese Dream tone.
