    hi,
    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 ?

  6. A friend of mine recently had a pickguard that didn't match put on his guitar. The tech (a very talented guy who has done quite a bit of work on my stuff) just drilled in some new holes and it fit perfect.

    If you don't mind having some new holes drilled, you can certainly have that pickguard, although it might not look QUITE as good.
