Fender Jazz Bass Pickguard

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by Tom Neves, Aug 9, 2005.

  1. Hi everyone,
    Any of you know where Fender custom shop gets their pickguard material from?
    I was wondering if it's available to the general public?
    I saw a 64 Custom shop Jazz at a local store here and it blew me away.
    Very much like the original in color and pattern.
    I don't think it's an off the shelf pickguard,as I have seen the regular production run Basses and they are not the same.
  2. What was so different about it?

    Ive seen tons of links about here for places that make custom pickguards, might want to check some of them out
  3. What was so different about it?

    It's almost identical to the old Fender guards.
    I have seen many Tortise pickguards and this, to my eye is the closest to the original in color and texture.
  4. sorry, somehow managed to mis that bit !
