    I replaced the white OEM pickguard on a MIM Fender with an aftermarket tortoise pickugard. If I tap or brush against the pickguard while playing, I get static discharge that produces popping noises through my amp.

    Is there a way to make this stop or do I just need to buy a different pickguard?
  2. Shield the pickguard.
