    I really like the Fender Precision Bass Special but I hate that gold metal pickguard. Does anyone know if replacement pickguards are available?

    Thanks,

    Wouldn't any standard Precision pickguard work? I'm pretty sure I have one of those precision special gold pickguards that I once put on my American Series Precision.

    The standard Precision pickguard did fit on my P-bass Deluxe. I'm actually selling it if you're interested ;x

    The P-Bass special has three control knobs while the regular Precision only has two.

    If you're talking about the old passive model, yes they will fit. I replaced mine and it improved the appearance of it so much. The only thing I had to add when I changed the pickguard was a little shielding because I was getting static but other than that it was a perfect fit.
