    I'm looking to put this on my MIM Jazz Bass, but am wondering if it would fit all the way. I know Fender made some jazz basses that came with this pickguard stock, but would it fit on my normal MIM Jazz?

    .. just my thought, but that would certainly be a question I would ask of the maker of the plate .. in fact I would ask them to send me a paper tracing of the pickguard and then try it for myself ...

    ... I have seen a few folk go from the one piece on the mid 90's Black Label Fender/Squier J's to the conventional p/g & control plate, but never the reverse ... innovative!!

    the one-piece is what came on the cheap squiers and the early mexis; you don't want that.

    (aside from looking more "low budget", you'd have the output jack now mounted in weak plastic instead of strong metal, a step backwards.)

    Yeah, just get a black control plate or paint yours.

    Edit: besides, that one piece looks too much like North America. :p
