Custom pickguard

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by AuBassMan, Feb 11, 2014.


  1. 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

  4. 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.

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

  10. I posted a link with a pic of a guard for a 4 string with the material in my OP.
     
  11. 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.
     
  13. Ok, thanks for the input.
