    I am the guy making Zero-Mod thumb rests
    for Rics and Jazz basses, and I have had more than a few
    emails about Lakland basses, and making a rest to fit
    the way my Jazz does!
    Since I have no experience with these personally, if
    you folks who own and work on them could enlighten me
    about a few things?

    Are the pickguards identical in screw hole pattern and spacing
    to Fender Jazz, or just somewhat different?

    If anybody could post a cellpic taken direct over the neck pickup
    with a small pocket ruler in the pic I would owe you a solid :hyper:

    The pickups are a bit different....and....skylines are different than US basses....

    I only have 5 string lakland J basses....is that still "good" for you?

    All information is good information at this point, thanks!

    I have seen some models that look exactly like Fender in layout and particulars, but
    was sure that many are not. Would surprise me to hear the pickups are a different
    size - makes sourcing replacements a lot tougher, for those guys always trying "the next" great pickup...
