    as the title says, anyone know who has the closest matching pickguards for an SX P bass?

    I think that no matter where you go, the guards themselves will be a good fit but there are fewer screw holes in SX pickguards.

    If you go with Jeannie Pickguards they will have you send them your pickguard, then they will use that as a pattern for the new one they send you. Guaranteed perfect fit. I've used them before and their products are top quality, but quite expensive.

    The pickguard will cost a good chunk of what the bass did, but its the only way it'll get done right.

  6. Have you looked under the pickguard yet? If it looks anything like the SX Jazz I just bought there is a very large route for the neck pickup. A clear pickguard will look very odd.

    oh i know it does have taht huge route

    this is my rocker' bass, so under the pickguard is going whatever pin-up chick, beer add, crude derogetory writing, or whatver else takes my fancy that particular show.

    its like a new pickguard every day , rawr

    I bought a new pickguard for my SX P Bass from this store on Ebay. I had to do some minor modification near the neck pocket and the pickups but all together it wasn't too painful and it was only like $15 bucks. I'm thinking of getting a red tort one soon.
