    Hey fellas,
    I'm looking for a tortoise shell pickguard for my MIA Series Jazz. It's a 10-hole, and I'd like to find the same somewhere. I don't think Fender offers them in this color for the MIA Jazz.

    The only ones I have seen on Fender.com are 11-hole. These may fit, but is it really noticeable? I would prefer a 10-hole, but then how about the question of hole alignment? I wouldn't want to mess with a pickguard once I got it, because I would certainly ruin it.

    Has anyone ordered 10-hole aftermarket pickguards that fit without modification? Any info would help. Thanks!

    I think the general observation is you may or may not get a PG with the holes lined up. I had to drill into my SX. I don't think I will drill an MIA.
