I have that guard, too.

LOVE the sticker! The refit Constitution is my favorite design. Where did you get it?

I found an overhead image of the ol' gal, turned it into a silhouette, and added the lines, all inspired by Decoboom's "Rockets Away". Then I bought some adhesive vinyl and went over my best friend's house to use her Cricut.

It also ended up on the Banshee that Doug Kauer built for Puisheen. 😉

Those black guards all look really great.

I'm guessing these EY guards are spec'd for "standard" 73mm-ish Jazzmaster bridge post spacing?
My SqJMJM has 74mm post spacing and the AOM-style bridge posts, so I suspect it'd be just a hair off from working as a direct replacement.

Yeah, standard JM pickguard setup. Same with their plastic guards (which, BTW, their mint is DAMN close to the AVRI Fender mint) but either way if you have to file a touch it'll be under the bridge (Image).

We offsetters think alike, I guess. I too wanted to pay homage to the prototype/Tavares JM as soon as I saw the 40th anniversary Squier.

Here is mine, affectionately nicknamed "Data".

It really does gain a vintage look, more than the gold guard does (ironically).
