    Hey guys, I'm upgrading my hardware on my SX. I want to convert everything to gold hardware which isn't a problem with since i'm putting on a gold BAII and gold tuners. To finish off the look I want the control panel gold. Do they sell gold control panels for jazz basses to replace the chrome ones? If so where? Thanks a lot!

  4. I swapped out my stock SX control plate with a vintage Fender plate. Be aware, though, that if you keep the stock pick guard, you'll have to trim it so that the control plate fits snugly with the pick guard.

    Or, you can do what I did and buy a replacement pick guard.

    wow excellent thanks for the info guys! I didn't think a Fender jazz pickguard will fit on an SX. What replacement did you use? Thanks again!
