It's curious about how you confirm a pickguard? It would be a late 60s w no perilod back.
The originals had a small truss rod notch and the top arc also has a bevel where it meets the neck.
If it looks old and has the truss scoop, there's a really good chance it's original. I'd looked for a replacement for my '70 for years (with that feature) and not even Fender offered one. It wasn't until fairly recently, that Fender began selling this style of pickguard. And, I finally got one. It's what they call eggshell color and is probably what's used on the '62 and '64 models. But, it's very close to standard white in color. Not aged at all. I guess it could also be a custom-made guard, but even the custom makers were reluctant to try to cut that feature for me, the couple of times I asked.
