    I see some are "11 hole", but the 11th hole is in the middle of the pickguard just above the neck pickup. Are the 10 remaining holes surround a re-issue 11 hole pickguard in the same spot as a 10 hole MIM jazz pickguard? It looks like those 10 will match up. Just a question of whether I want to put in the 11th hole.

    Watch Fender pickguard screw hole placement. I ended up doing a custom one from pickguards.com. They stated there are no standards from Fender on the placement of the screws, so a stock replacement pickguard may not fit your bass. You may want to send them a tracing and see if they have a match already on file. I think that would save some $.

    The 11-hole was from older Fender models - it's on my Geddy Jazz, most now have 10 holes.

    Hope this helps.
