New pickguard for my Warmoth Jazzy

Post by smjenkins » Tue Feb 07, 2012 7:16 pm

The differences between the traditional JM pickguard and the Warmoth "remaster" were more than I could deal with so I decided to have John from terrapin island make me a replacement. After a few iterations, we ended up with a guard that uses the screw, control and pickup holes from the W guard and the toggle hole from the standard one. The result is a JM that looks much more like an AVRI. If you've got a Warmoth JM, John should be able make you one of these now.

I have to admit that I did a double take thinking it was a Squier Jazzy, but this is at least ten times more gorgeous.

i love warmoth stuff, but their Jazzy pick guard bugs me. You did a GREAT job combining the best of both worlds!

Definitely not a Squire, but it is very similar in color. I was looking for a more saturated TV Yellow color so I went to the home depot and found a color close. My finish guy matched it amazingly. Then 6 months later the Squire came out.
