Fender Gold Pickguard

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by SeedyBloke, Feb 27, 2003.


  1. Hi all,

    I recently got myself a new Fender P-Bass Special for my 21st (after a very long wait!).

    It has a gold anodized scratchplate/pickguard which looks pretty cool. However I would like to buy a new pickguard so I can change the look of it now and then. Being pretty thin and made from some kind of metal (maybe aluminium?) I'm not sure that if I order a standard vinyl pickguard it will fit correctly - maybe different type of screws?

    It should fit...I cant think of a reason Fender would customize something like that

    If your talking about the MIM P-special, I have one of these and recently replaced the gold adonized guard with a standard P-bass pickguard from Warmoth. Fits perfect.
