    Does anyone know of an online site where I can buy the pickguard that is on a 70s jazz bass? It looks to be black with a white border from what I can tell in pictures. I want to replace the white pickguard on a new fender american deluxe with it. I love this look!

    The problem you're always going to run into on Jazz basses is the screw pattern. Real 60's and 70's always seem to turn out being different than even reissue pickguards, and don't line up properly. Unless you don't mind re-drilling a few holes in your body.
    70's screwpattern black/white/black gaurds are easy to find from places like WD and All Parts. But of you don't want to have to re-drill holes, then you're best off sending in a trace of your pickguard and having one made.
