    I'm trying to find a new pickguard for my American Deluxe Jazz 5 String...post 2010 21 fret model. The only place that seems to offer the material/color that I want is Fender, but they don't/won't make a pickguard with this material for this model.

    I've been searching online trying to find this, or even the material so I could try to find someone to cut it for me, but no luck. I can't even remember all the sites I've looked at, but the first several pages of various worded searches. I've sent emails to a couple...wdmusic and Chandler...nobody seems to carry this material but Fender and the rep I talked to there couldn't or wouldn't tell me where they get it from.

    So if anybody knows where I can get a pick guard for my bass made of this, or where I might get this material...please let me know. Here's a link to a guard for a 4 string: http://www.music123.com/productDetail/productDetail.jsp?entProductId=361326

    Close...I'm looking for black with a little red. My bass is trans red, I think the color scheme I'm looking for would look really good on it.

    Thanks. I called and spoke to John's wife, nice lady. She's taking over the business, John passed away about 6 months ago. I sent an her email with link...even if she doesn't have the material I'm looking for I'm going to send some biz her way.

    What material and color do you want? You didn't specify.

    Please, if you know where I can buy this material or a guard made with it for my bass let me know. I've searched and searched but I can't find it anywhere.

    I have never searched for it to be honest, as I really dislike the looks of it.
