    Who here has changed the pickgaurd on their Fender P bass?

    How do you change it. I assume the pots are attached to the pickguard. Is is a difficult job changing it?

    I'm asking as i have seen a nice white hod rod p bass, and would like to buy it and change the pickguard to a gold one.

  3. When I took the pickguard off my Squier P, the knobs were held on with a nut. Just take the pickguard off the body, take off the knobs, then unscrew the nuts

    Just keep track of all the screws, (pot) nuts & washers, etc.

    Here's a nifty site from WD Music Products --> pickguards.com

    Lotsa' purty colors. WARNING! The pickguards shown
    are for a...Strat :eek: :p .
