Got a pickguard today from ebay that was stated as fitting American and Mexican Pbasses. Did it fit? Of course not. Even if I move it slightly around the neck pocket so that the control cavity is covered, the holes in the bass are way off. I ordered another one from thestratosphere on ebay and if this doesn't fit, I guess I'll get out the toothpicks and glue and then drill new holes. Sometimes I wonder what's up with Fender. Even the stock pickguard BARELY fits over one part of the cavity. It's so close to not covering about an inch long space on the strings side, that shielding tape cannot overlap in that area. This is the second Mexican P bass I've had that's been like this. It will be my LAST MIM Pbass. Ugh!
