I'm not an expert on guards, but avoid anything that says it's for a Japanese Jag - they tend to be different. I would expect Rexter to use US standard patterns (I had a Tele body from him and everything lined up beautifully with US pattern parts - and it was gorgeous too!), but you might check with him. I've heard Squier parts fit US patterns, but wouldn't rely on that unless you find a bargain worth taking a chance on.

There should be lots of choice in the white/parchment/mint range for a US fit guard (much harder to find a nice tort without much expense).

Great. Thanks. I've gone to customworldparts, as they seem to be closest to the UK.

Next question is whether the same screws that they sell in 12 to fix the scratchplate also work for the metal plates?

Sorry, I know this is meta-detail and probably OTT but I'd like to have it all there for the build.

Actually, scratch that as I'm sure I'll need a bunch.

More pressingly, Customworld are out of stock of Fender bridge thimbles.

I suspect these are wrong:

Would you agree?

They look more or less the thing. Again US and MIJ are slightly different - http://www.offsetguitars.com/forums/vi ... hp?t=33676

A quick google throws up these.... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/11335461484 ... noapp=true

And yes, same screws for scratchplate and for metal plates.

Hope that helps!

Inca silver is one of the best finishes for a Jaguar. I find metallic silvers and blues go really well with the chrome control plates.
Can't go wrong.
