    They appear to be identical, the second one is just missing the "Truss rod notch" label, but it clearly has it.

    If I had to guess, someone at Fender just made a data entry error, or whatever system they use to populate their site imported duplicate information.

    It's pretty common.

    They appear to me to be slightly different color.

    Unless the difference is simply a different colored tort, I don't know. In the drop down menu, one of them mentions that it has a truss rod notch, the other doesn't. Maybe one of them doesn't have the notch and they have the wrong picture on the website.

    Oh, I didn't see that you could find the part number on the Fender page.

    All I saw initially was the one Model number listed on both pages, 0992170. That's why I was assuming it was a duplicate, or an error. You are correct though, different part numbers for sure.

    EDIT:

    Looks like you are not the first one to ask this:

    http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f8/whats-difference-pickguard-question-893303/

    Seems like no one knew then either.

    Amazon has both:

    http://www.amazon.com/Fender-Accessories-099-2157-000-Guitar-Pickguard/dp/B003BG6KXQ
    http://www.amazon.com/Fender-007-4131-000-Pickguard-Mount-Tortoise/dp/B003B03G34

    Colors look different there too, but only slightly. Their photo for 0992 does not have a notch, but the reviews on it clearly state it does (some people complain in their reviews specifically because it does have a notch, and the photo does not.) 007 guard has 0 reviews and seems newer. 0992 has several reviews.

    Only major difference I could find was this:

    0992 - Date first available at Amazon.com: June 8, 2005
    0074 - Date first available at Amazon.com: November 11, 2010

    Makes sense, tbh based on that info from Amazon it looks like the 0992 model is the "old" model and the 0074 model is the "new" model.

    There's probably little to no functional differences.

    the 0074 looks like the old packing though.
