Pick guards

    Has anyone ever bought a pick guard from buzzards bass guitars? They have a wide range of guards, but I bought one recently and it doesn't fit. I'm an international buyer and they don't like returns. Has anyone else had the same problem?

    If you search here on "buzzards" you will find a bunch of ugliness.

    Thanks webtroll but it's for my mustang bass, so it seems like it's either through buzzards or WD themselves

    I sent a P Special pickguard to Terrapin (I'm sure other companies do this as well) and they used that to make a template. I then had 2 guards made, one an actual copy of the original (which had been painted black) in single ply white, and a second with a traditional P layout in white pearloid. They sent me the old guard back with the new ones and now have a template for the old P Special. I'd rather spend extra money and time dealing with a company I trust, than hope a company with bad feedback doesn't do a hack job and then get snippy if I don't like it.
