As far as I know there are no Pickguard Shields made anywhere for the Fender Jazz Bass which is rather surprising considering the popularity of this Bass. With this design I have incorporated both the older Vintage Pickguard Designs and the Newer Designs. NOTE. This will not work with the new Fender Elite Jazz Bass (Fender shortened the horn on the cutaway and added an extra fret on the neck). So there was just no way to tweak the design to fit. I may offer one for the Elite Series at a later date.
You’ll see I have included the thumb and finger rest screw openings for both that are installed above and below the strings. I have also included a variety of screw placement designs and a cutout to accommodate the neck heel truss rod adjustment opening. I have also added a tab that protrudes out where the Control Panel meets the Pickguard. This will connect the Pickguard Shield to the Control Panel’s Grounding Plain.
We now offer the thickest Copper Pickguard Shields on the Net! These .006″ Thick Copper Pickguard Shields will fit both righty and lefty guitars. These are High-Quality Laser Cut Shields (not hand cut like our competitors now offer). These Copper Shields are designed to fit both Fender Vintage and Modern Pickguards perfectly without alteration, unlike our competitors designs!
I have taken and tweaked the design so it will also fit, without adjustment, 95% of the third party Pickguards in the market. No wiring necessary, just attach and start enjoying the noise-canceling benefits of a fully shielded Pickguard. Also eliminates static buildup some pickguards exhibit. I Guarantee these to fit Genuine Fender American Pickguards but some adjustment may be necessary for third party manufacturers.
