i love it

but i found a maple neck i wanted to put on it (its also fretless which was the big plus got it cheap.) but the colors dont seem to match well on paper(havent received neck yet.) i also cant seem to find a white pick guard that would match and fit ;(. i wish i had got the black on black now.

I think this isn't exactly easy because it's a Jazz bass pickguard with a P-Bass pickup routing. Those sort of pickguards aren't really commonplace yet, I'd imagine.

Check and see if the Mark Hoppus sig bass' pickguard is interchangable with the Blacktop guard.

You'd have to break out the scissors with a Hoppus guard even if the screw holes match up.

Plus doesn't the Hoppus have a flipped P pup?

I know Warmoth does a Jazz pickguard with a Precision pickups route, but I'm not sure if it'll line up exactly with the Blacktops pickup or not. If not they'll send you a blank Jazz pickguard that you could route out yourself.

This, or if it's been under 30 days from MF or GC you can return it and get the black on black?

or just buy the materials and cut yourself out a pickguard.

Depends on the year... They have both regular and flipped versions:






...but i also realize now that they DON'T have a control plate... so the Hoppus guard is a no-go.

Dunno, but probably not. Try getting in contact with Fender Japan. They have a few Jazz models with the pickguard cut for a P, you'd probably have to drill new screw holes though.
And then there's a tonne of companies who will cut you a new 'guard if you send them your original.

I wonder if an Aerodyne pickguard would fit...?
