Are the pickguards on all MIA Fender teles the same?

    Just want to swap a pickguard, but there are none listed as specifically fitting the model I have. Are the 8-hole guards interchangeable on MIA guitars like the American Performer, Pro, Elite, Ultra, etc?

    The Elite’s a little different because it’s got a notch for the truss rod adjust wheel.Other than that AFAIK the bridge cutout, neck pickup placement and screw hole positions will be the same for standard-format MIA teles.
