    Anyone yet find a source of replacement pickguards for SX basses? I've researched online to no avail. Please don't recommend a site unless you KNOW they stock them. Or a reasonable copy builder? I may have to paint this white one black. Why SX doesn't offer replacements is stupefyingly short-sighted. Thanx!

    There's no reason that SX has to make different parts if only one person ever asked for one. Or two or three. They do us plenty of favors already.

    There are router bits with a ball bearing on the end so you can trace your pickguard while cutting a new one. I've done a bunch of those. And you can use any flat material you want.

    Some are willing to help, others are not. Anyone else want to wag a finger at me? If SX sells a product, they should be willing to back it up. After all, they have what I (and others) may need in the same factory the bass came from...yes? If I knew the location in China, I'd order it direct.

    Sounds like custom is the only way to go. Or, you could buy the SX with the pickguard you want and swap the two.

    From everything that I read, Rondo stands behind their products as well as anyone, I have a MUCH more expensive bass I can't get a part for, what's a boy to do...
