'62 RI pickguard fit on late 90's MIJ Jazz?

  1. just bought a late 90's MIJ Jazz Bass and i want to put a tortoise shell guard on it...it's olympic white.

    just curious if the Fender '62 RI guard would work or if i need to modify it.


    would it be easier to get one cut for it?

    i checked the normal pickguard places and all they had were templates for the MIM and MIA.

    what gives?

    I have the damnedest feeling of deja vu. I just answered this question a minute ago. Fender pickguards are hit and miss. It should fit but it might not. If you don't make a mess it is okay to modify as needed to make it work. I did.
