    Anyone know where to get one? I checked RondoMusic and I couldnt find one. Will a standard Fender Pbass Pickguard fit the Essex?
    Thanks all.
     
  2. well, i know this may or may not help you, but i had a fender jazz mim bass, and put in some essex pickups. the pickups fit very oddly, the pickups were slightly bigger than the cavity. after sanding down the pickup a touch, i put the pickguard over the bass and found that it wouldn't fit right. as previously stated, the pickups are slightly bigger.

    so basically, if you don't mind cutting a pickguard a little, it should be fine.
