Since the “can i put a stang pickguard on my JS?” question gets asked every now and again, i decided to take pics to illustrate why not when i was changing stuff around on my guitars recently…..
^^^^ a js guard on top of a stang guard, to show they are a bit different (note the wd JS guard has rounded holes for the switches – which is wrong and means the switches don’t work properly unless you file the switch holes a bit – also the wd JS guard is the same shape as the original fender guard(not shown in pic), but is about 1-2 mm smaller all around the outside, though the neck/bridge/pup cutouts are fine)
the stang guard on the JS. the guard is a bit too long to fit between the neck pocket and the bridge/control plate properly.
so there you go.
