    Hey everyone!
    I'm after some advice.

    I have a Squier Affinity P-Bass, and my pickguard got broken, so I have bought this http://www.amazon.com/Fender-13-Hole-Standard-Pickguard-Black/dp/B000RW2DLA

    While it fits my bass great, the only problem I'm having is the pick ups - they do not fit at all. Can anyone recommend some pick ups that would fit? Its just frustrating, as I thought that all pickups were the same size!

    Many thanks in advance for anyones help/advice.

    What larryo means is cut the pg hole bigger. You can use files or a dremel.

    Yeah, it's not uncommon to have to "hog out" the holes for the pickups when fitting a new PG... Files are your best bet here - flat and half round... Take your time, and you'll be OK - it's not that hard...
