SX pickguard question

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by heretic, Jul 16, 2005.


  1. First off, sorry if this is i the wrong section. Ok, I'm finally getting around to modding my SX that I've had for about a year. I'm ordering all the parts I need but I'm not sure on the pickguard. I'm wondering if a standard P-bass guard will fit my SPJ-62 (P-bass special) since it has three control knobs, tone/vol/vol, instead of the standard input/tone/vol. Is the input knob in the exact same place as the third knob?

    Bonus question: I've read that celluloid guard tend to warp over time. Is this true? How long will it last on average?

    THANKS :bassist:

    yes, it should be in the same place. I've changed a few pickguards on p-bass specials and they always are.

    I don't believe that a standard Fender pickguard will fit. I remember Kurt saying they are different in the Essex Mega-Thread. I don't feel like searching through 191 pages to find it though...

    I don't think it has anything to do with the controls, but it is the shape and the screw hole placement.

    Drilling new holes isn't that big of a deal, thanks for the help.
