    Hello folks,
    i need your help to find this pickguard:

    I want exactly the same but i don't find any now. What I found is the pickguard on the new Am STD Fender Basses and it's really different, more red and bright.
    Is there a shop who sells exactly the same???

    Thanks

    There are two types of tort, red and brown.

    In that light and angle it's hard to tell, but it may very well be a brown tort.

    Several pickguard sources handle brown tort, Jeannies and Pickguardian for example.

    It shouldn't be too hard to track one down.

    Best of luck,

    Bob

    Looks like red tort to me. Brown tort has yellow in it, no? And if the OP didn't like the Fender AM STD tort, that one was brown.

    What is so special about "exactly the same" guard? What's different about it vs the AM STD?

    Here is the standard tortoise pickguard we find on the Am STD P Bass:

    It's not exactly the same thing.

    By the way, i order a 62 reissue fender pickguard, i'll see if it will fit my needs.

    Thanks

    I think Goldenglory is right, that looks like red tort to me. As to the question of why exactly... Because they look different and the OP likes the red. :eyebrow:

    the one on the left looks kind of similar. It's a '62 RI from 2011 or so. The one on the right is a '78.
