    I would like to switch out my pickguard on my Squier VM Jazz 5 string. I'm looking to change it to tort or red pearloid. Are thier any direct replacements? Do Fender Jazz V pick guards work? Does Warmoth's pickguard builder offer any solution? I would really appreciate any help.

    I would scan it as a PDF and compare it to the printout. Then call a maker and ask if they will use the emailed PDF as a template to duplicate it for you. As long as they set the scale right when they print it, it will be a perfect template.

    I believe I read here that a fender replacement will fit but the screw holes likely won't line up and the control plate area will need to be trimmed: the VM plate is pointed not rounded like the Fenders.
