What kind of plastic where the first fender stratocaster pickup covers made of? Pete quigley-palm city, florida
Doing research and talking to George Fullerton and plastic molders I found that the plastic was called Cycolac brand polymers and is from a unique family of ABS (Acrylonitrile-Butadiene-Styrene) thermoplastic resins produced by the Marbon Chemical Division of Borg-Warner. The info I found was from 1963 and at that time the plastic came in nine major formulations. After a short time Fender started using a nylon based material for it’s injected molded covers. Cycolac brand plastic is well suited for a wide range of consumer and industrial applications. It didn’t work to well for the constant abuse from strumming and picking and the covers became brittle and pieces would crack and chip off. Depending on the formulation the plastic worked well in other applications. I think it was a combination of molding and the thinness of the walls that caused it to fail upon use. Cycolac brand polymers also offered seven other product improving advantages.
1. Good electrical properties: It had low water absorption rate plus its uniform dielectric constant and power factors. The electrical properties didn’t do to much but the low moisture absorption rate helped on those hot humid nights.
2. Resistance to chemicals: It is highly corrosion resistant and offers protection against alkalizes, salt solutions, oils and mild acids.
3. Lightweight: The ABS resins are the lightest of all truly rigid thermoplastics, with a specific gravity as low as 1.02.
4. Wide color range: It’s available in hundreds of bright, sparkling colors, tints and shades. It has superior resistance to stains and doesn’t discolor normally.
5. Dimensional Stability: Cycolac offers excellent dimensional stability even under extreme temperatures.
6. High gloss finish: The ABS polymers mold to a luxurious satiny finish. The smooth hard surface resists scratching and marring and retains it’s natural sheen.
7. Ease of finishing: Cycolac can be calendered into a grained, leather like finish and can be lacquered, enameled, printed on and can be vacuum metallized.
Cycolac plastics have been used on MacGregor football helmets, Western Electric Telephones, Remington typewriters, radios, power tools, photo copy machines, luggage, office equipment, baseball helmets, fishing reels, furniture, television cabinets, toys, pipe fittings and musical instrument components.
Cycolon brand ABS resins have high levels of performance in critical areas such as chemical resistance, rigidity, hardness and surface gloss. Cycolon brand ABS resins injection mold easily and exhibit good mold flow for intricate parts.

About This Listing
Three rare vintage pickup covers period correct for early 1970's.
White covers are accurate for 1966-1975 CBS Stratocasters, after which Fender switched to black pickups covers and pick guards.
One of them has visible wear at one screw hole, but it should do its job perfectly nevertheless.
One seems to show less of the creamy white color of vintage covers.
They used to be on a 73 Strat but I can't be 100% sure they are from same exact year. Such parts were stocked in high volumes by Fender.
These covers are ready for your vintage CBS Strat restoration project.
Willing to separate but please let me know ahead of time to work logistics (creating a separate listing, etc).

And she allowed me to finish in her round soft ass. Oh, what her ass is - the dream of a lover of anal sex. I was completely delighted with the caresses and passion of this gorgeous, intelligent woman. So the three months of my stay in a parallel reality flew by.
I was absolutely delighted that I was thrown here.Aging Strat pickup cover with coffee
She said. Ivan was delighted, began to kiss and hug his wife, then laid the soft bed on the bed, jerked her clitoris, licked her pussy. All over - everything was according to the rules - and finally put his penis into her. And the frog - a beautiful girl, in the sense - turned out to be a virgin.
In short, they spent a fabulous night.
