MIM Jazz pickguard choices

  1. I have a new fender mim jazz 5 string, looking to replace the pickguard with a pearl or shell pickguard in a color other than white, anyone know where I can get one?

    You may want to be careful about the holes lining up. I have two Fender Jazz basses, and the pearl pickguard I bought for one does not exactly line up with the holes drilled for the other one, but then again, one is a MIA and the other is a MIJ.
     
  3. JohnL is right. I bought a mint green pickguard for my MIM Jazz, and a couple of the holes didn't line up, so I had to drill new ones.. into the bass itself, too! That was a heady experience. But it turned out fine.
     
  4. WD Music Products' pickguard site (pickguards.com) does pickguards specifically for MIM Jazz basses (both 4- and 5- string).
