Ok, I was looking into buying a solid 4 string, because all my good basses are 5 strings. I was looking at just a standard Fender Jazz Bass. But just a thought..If i take the pickguard off, will the wires be exposed? I know Jaco's signature bass and other Fenders don't have one on it, but i wasn't sure if that applied to all of Fender's basses?
depnds on what fender jazz you buy, the wirer aren't exposed but if you buy a mexican one there a hole in the body. I thought with the americans you won't have this problem.
Um, my squier jazz bass doesn't have any exposed wires when the pickguard is off so I wouldn't think that good fenders would, however I'm not sure.

Ok, thanks, I really don't like the looks of the pickguard, and i don't use a pick anyways, so I'm not too worried about scratching the finish or anything.
usually the cavities are routed a bit bigger when theres a pickguard on.

You might not like your pickguard... but you can get almost any pickgaurd you want there. For any type of bass.

thats beat, you cant see them before you buy.
