    Thinking about changing the black pickguard on my Brice Ash 5 string. Can someone recommend a company/individual that can make one based on a tracing or cut out template? Also, what do you think would look cool with that body? Tortoise shell, white pearloid?

  4. You might try these guys, I ordered a black pearloid one for my Geddy, should have it in a couple of weeks. :hyper:

    http://pickguards.us/

    or these guys sound pretty good too,

    http://www.terrapinguitars.com/ but I've no experience with them. :D

    either way they'll both be able to help with what you want.

    Since this is repair/modification oriented, I recommend asking it in the Setup forum. Moved.

    I have not measured it,but a normal Fender Jazz pickguard may not fit.

    if its like the SX basses, then the pickguard too large.

    Someone here melted a bit of his pickguard to get it to fit, I don't recommend taking that route.
