    is that a fender pickguard on the bottom one?

    also, get low. i checked fender.com already. the one picture i found had a reallly dark pickguard on it and the ones i have seen irl havebeen a lot lighter. ie, why i asked someone to post pics or other ones, because there is so many different styles and looks.

    Yes, It is a Fender 62 reissue guard. The covers and rest are Fender, too.

    Before I installed the rest, you could hardly see the holes. They are almost invisible, as the tort has so much swirling detail that the holes are almost concealed.

    It looks a bit better now that I've cleaned the blood off of the pickups...


    And it plays pretty nicely since I set it up the other night...

    The pickguard color is typical of early 70's tortoise.

    yeah, the sunburast on my 04 is a tad bit different, so offcourse it will look different.
