pickguard problem

    i've got a fender 50th anniversary jazzbass,
    and i want to exchange the white pickguard.
    the problem is that i ordered a regular one and
    it doesn't fit (drill holes, the truss rod cavity
    is near the neck pickup) anyway i am working near a carpenter and i was thinking maybe i sould give him my original one so he will make me one.
    the local luthier (we don't have much in israel) wants 50 $ !!! to make one and as far as i know
    he doesn't have much of experience of making them.
    so what do you think ?

    This is a very common problem. You could send your original to Warmoth and they'll do a good replacement, but with international shipping etc., it might be pricey and I'd guess it will take a few weeks...
