i just got a nice mid 90's mim j-bass in a trade. the pickguard is white on a cream body. problem is, the pickguard is one solid piece and extends past the knobs and jack. i can really only find replacement pickguards that require a control plate, which i'd like to get also. just from looking around at pictures though, it seems like the control plate won't fit without drilling. not sure though. any ideas? thanks.
