    i find it hard to believe Warmoth does not sell a pickguard for their jazz 5 basses. Lots of folks have these basses but i can't find who makes a guard for it.
    I know Nino has done them for his Valenti basses, but he is super busy with the well deserved success of his builds, and has no time. besides i want to order three different ones.
    Does anyone have an idea if someone makes these?

    I could make you a tracing of the one I have on my Valenti. I figure if you send that to one of the many places that can make you a PG you'll be set.

    Adrian did you already ask Nino ?. If you didint I would suggest droping him a line and seeing what you could work out, he has cut me a very nice pickguard before and I would recomend him with out a doubt.

    Adrian, if worse comes to worse, I could trace my Deluxe 5 pickguard that Nino made for my Valenti. You could probably use that for the Chandler guys.

    Nino contacted me and offered to make the guards. Thanks, Nino!
    i misunderstood him when he sais he was too busy, so i will follow up on that.. however....i just got offered my old Fender Am J dlx 5 back, a bass i absolutely loved, and that should take care of my "pickguard and jazz plate" jones
    now the problem is - too many basses! not enough money!
    i would have the black/block warmoth
    the redword burl
    the white block neck
    the white Fender J
    maybe put the white block warmoth neck on the Fender? ( will it fit?)
    get a fretless neck for the redwood? ( no pickguard )
    damn! i need to do something, dont want to miss out on the fender- those are hard to find!

    to," wait a minute! you can take a little longer !" when my trans white Fender suddenly became available- i still want the redwood warmoth, but i loved that fender!
