    I have bought one before, then sold it with a bunch of other pickguards about a year ago. It was a 62 RI guard with the thumbrest holes, etc. Now I need one, and can't find one! Anyone know where to get one? Mint are easy to find.. I need parchment.

    Help!

    Well.. this one time.. at band camp..
    I know Fender made them because I've had one - 3ply with the proper vintage truss rod notch and holes for the cover and tugbar. Basspartsresource.com has white and mint '62s, but no parchment (only for the standard which has the huge truss rod cut-out.. http://www.guitarpartsresource.com/bpickguard_pregenuine.htm
    Discontinued maybe?

    I owned one as well, and sold it with a couple other 62RI guards on here as a package deal. I need to find out who it was and track them down because it appears it is a discontinued item.

    If you can't find one, a Standard guard will fit perfectly and you can use a '62 RI guard as a drill template for the tugbar and PU cover holes.

    The ones I've seen have the truss rod cut out, which I can't stand
