    I have an older 90's MIM P that I recently bought a Warmoth guard for and it fit perfectly.

    Screw holes might be misaligned, but everything else should line up, as long as you don't get a guard for a deluxe.

    You didn't indicate JBass or PBass.

    Go to the Warmoth website and select the pickguard you want. Scroll down and you'll see a link for a PDF drawing of the pickguard. You can print that out and compare to your bass.

    Challenge with this lies in the scaling of the image & accuracy of the printer.

    There are scaling marks on the PDFs to assist in scaling.

    if a jazz bass, make sure you get it cut for fender control plate.
    warmoth has there own contour that is different.
    its an option when you order it.

    It was ordered for me as a gift from my brother. I just ordered a new MIM jazz from Zzounds as I was gassing for a beater passive J. I had told him I was going to order a tort guard for it and he went ahead trying to be nice and ordered one for me. Maybe Im overlooking it but I dont see any option on the website for a different control plate contour. If all I have to do is drill some new holes, thats fine. If worst comes to worst Ill just leave the plastic on and exchange it. Thanks guys!

    Okay so I called Warmoth. They said size wise, it should fit fine. I may have to drill some new mounting hole but as I said, that is no problem. Sweet. I'll post pics when the bass and pickguard arrive.

    Received the pickguard today. Fits perfect but I will have to drill a couple new holes. So for anyone wondering, I didnt ask for any special contour options or anything. It fits. Ill post pics when I get home from work.
