    I am collecting info on pattern variations to try and accommodate all versions of the Fender Jazz (4 string) and hopefully the Lakland Jazz.

    As ironic as it is - The Jazz I own has no guard!

    There seems to be three screw patterns?

    The Lakland Jazz basses look (to the casual eye)
    to match the one with a screw over the neck pickup
    but to one side (neckward). Are Laklands their own thing
    or do they conform to Fender dimensions?

    That is with regard to 4 strings, not even trying to sort out 5 stringers yet....

    If any of you builders/ repairers have some old guards
    you want to sell off PM me! I don't need pretty ones,
    just ones that are actual Fender /Lakland dimensions.
