    ...to get a Fender standard MIA Jazz without the pickguard on it? I know I could always remove it but I'm not sure I'd want the screw holes in the body. That would mean ordering custom, correct?

    Yes, and -if possible- will cost an arm and a leg, possibly more. Consider getting a standard MIA Jazz and then replacing the body with an 'undrilled' one from Allparts, etc.

    good luck!
     
  3. ^ pretty much your only option , you could sell a mint MIA body for more then your replacement you desire more then likely.


    I think highway one jazz basses have no channel route but you will have the screw holes unless you refinish it.
     
  4. ^ I was gonna say that I don't think they make Custom Shop Fenders apart from the re-issues etc. and if you could get one, it'd be much cheaper to fill the holes with putty or something and refinish it. The other option is much smarter, but if you absolutely need to have the original genuine Fender body, that'd probably be the way to go.
