Does anyone own a Fender Modern Player Jazz Bass?

This one: http://www.fender.com/series/modern...ayer-jazz-bass/

Does anyone know if I could replace the pickguard with a normal J pickguard to make it an H-J pickup configuration?

I'm not sure how exactly the pickup mounting/routing works, if it's directly and only into the pickguard, or if a J pickup will fit in the routing there.

It appears the routing should accommodate a regular JBass PU. However, you'll have to mount the PU directly on the wood, meaning, you'll use the new PG to position the JBass PU, then screw the PU.
