    Does anyone know where I can get a gold anodized(sp) pickguard for a P-bass?

  3. Guitar Center usually has them available too. In fact the gold anodized P bass guards are the only P bass guards I've seen at GC. Also, try ebay, I've seen a few on there from time to time.

    I've got one lying around. It came off my mim pbass. Let me know if you're interested. I'd let it go CHEAP.

    I have one too-came of my MIM Pbass deluxe. Has a small black mark(was there when I got the bass)near the bottom hole for the jack, but otherwise, is in good shape. Is kept in the bag my tortoiseshell one came in.
    Let me know if interested. :)

    How cheap would you guys let those go for? I'm thinking about it. However does anyone know where it'd be possible to get a custom one done for a Jazz bass? I looked at all of the sites mentioned. Oh yes and the one on the Musician's Friend website:

    http://www.musiciansfriend.com/srs7...1199177453/search/g=home/detail/base_id/36939

    I think that's the same one on the MIM Deluxe P-bass Special but could anyone confirm this?

    Also, if I wanted to replace a P-bass Neck with a Jazz bass neck would that be possible? Or are the dimensions different?

    A Fender jazz neck should fit right into the neck pocket of a Fender Pbass. If it's not a Fender, it depends on who made it. Some will, some won't. I don't know where to find a Jbass pickguard like the gold ones. I don't ever remember seeing one, but they may exist.

    Make an offer-I'm sure it's not all that expensive brand new anyway. Let me know :)

    Where can I get replacement Jazz bass necks, besides Warmoth? I wanna try and keep it under 200 but preferably under 150.

    Try ebay, they usually have a lot of Fender type necks on there. Check your email.

    www.pickguards.com (WDMusic) will make custom pickguards, all you have to is send them a tracing of what you want. They will also make their standard pickguards with custom pickup configurations. I had them make a pickguard for a Gibson Melody Maker with a cut-out for a Strat type pickup. They charge 25% extra for custom work, but it still was less than $40.

    I e-mailed them and they said they don't make metal pickguards... :(

    Any other help out there is much appreciated.

    I was thinking about putting one of these JW Custom diamond plate aluminum pickguards on my Skyline -

    They have all kinds of shapes and colors and will make customs, but they aren't cheap.
