I would like to see a black JM with a handpainted swirl pickguard (as seen on another thread which I forgot).

Here's a dakota red Mustang with a factory made WD pickguard with an abandoned color called tie dye blue:

They also later had a color called tie dye blue and pink, which I believe had more pink. They still offer tie dye pink.

My vote would be for tortoise or gold.

no. but if you spend 300+ on a vintage guard, suppose you could mod the guitar (new screw holes)
actually, the black guitar in this pic is a CIJ, and i didn't have to drill any new holes to fit the vintage guard. i also had a vintage guard on the sunburst MIJ on the left for a while, and it fit without modification too. this has to do with the fact that celluloid shrinks over time (anyone who has removed the guard on an early 60s fender knows that it can be a bitch to get back on), and the holes on the MIJ/CIJs are located slightly closer to the center of the guitar than on AVRI/vintage. i'm not saying all vintage celluloid guards will fit CIJs, it all depends on how the guard has shrunken, but the ones i've had were really easy to fit.

How did you fit dat golden pickguard on a sunburst CIJ?

It was a Fender Japan pickguard. I don't know if they still make them.

In search of Japanese JM pickguards?
Here you go:

I've bought all three of them and they fit perfectly on my Japanese Jazzmasters.

Do you recall where you found the gold guard you put on the left sunburst MIJ Jazzmaster? Do the allparts gold guards fit MIJ?
