FS/ FT: Black Abalone Pickguard, Fender Blacktop Jazz

Discussion in 'For Sale: Parts, Strings, and Accessories' started by ShadowVampyre, Mar 28, 2014.

  1. Hi, I aboslutely loved this black abalone pickguard, and wanted it so bad for my White chrome pearl Fender Blacktop Jazz (Double P), but just never got around to having one made.

    Turns out MarkoYYZ ordered one on accident, and I bought it. Loved the look on my blacktop, but just sold my blacktop Jazz, since I really do not play 4 strings, or like the Jazz skinny neck.

    So, I have this for sale, $45 shipped CONUS, what I paid for it from MarkoYYZ. like brand new, used once, and not with a pick.

    I would be interested in some trades for:
    -White pearloid Fender 5 string Precision pickguard
    -Black Fender 5 string Precision pickguard
    -Any StingRay 5 HH pickguards
    -Comfort Strap
    -Really anything else you might think is a fair trade

    Thanks for looking, and thanks to MarkoYYZ, I am recyling his pictures :D

    No worries about the pictures - borrow away.

    Just a note to the lookers - the PG won't fit a non-export Aerodyne, which is what I originally bought it for.

    They go for $60 new (plus taxes & shipping it cost me over $75) and it was never mounted, so $45 with shipping is a pretty good deal for a "new" pickguard.

    Will it fit a MIA or MIM regular jazz? I'm thinking about converting my jazz to a PJ...

    If you use the PG itself to position your new P pup routing, then yes.

    Looking at WD's website it almost looks like it has blue and red flecks in it. Looks really good. How about a close up photo with a coin next to it for reference.
  6. Oh it is beautiful, my favorite, I just don't have the blacktop anymore . ImageUploadedByTalkBass1396840584.624844. ImageUploadedByTalkBass1396840600.309361.

    Wow! That is nice! Thanks for the closeups. I would have to modify the neck pocket cutout slightly so it would fit my Sadowsky but it is really tempting.

    I know this was forever ago but did you sell this pickguard? I'm having trouble finding blacktop pickguards besides standard colors haha
