    im working on building up an old lawsuit p and have a quick question

    im looking at replacing the pickguard but the one i want to buy has more screws then the original, can i just drill out the extra holes and use it? also the original has opening for the truss rod at the top and the new one dosnt, but can i just remove the pickguard when i need to access the truss rod?

    You could just get a copy of the one you have. Through some of the pickguard sites on the web. Try pickguards.com I think? You could get an exact copy of the original in any material they have for it looks like a fair-ish price... no extra holes, no drama..
  3. im not really looking to put a lot of money into this bass its more of a learn how a bass it put together project and i found a great deal on this pickguard so if i can use it i would really love to, but ill keep that in mind for the next project, thanks
