    Pretty much the title -- I'm trying to obtain the same metal pickguard (5 holes, no holes for pickup) that's on the new Telecaster Chrissie Hynde model. I've looked pretty far and wide. Fender makes an 8 hole but with the mounting holes around the neck pickup, which is a deal breaker for me.

    Does Fender sell parts for their Signature Teles?

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks Sea Devil -- I looked closely at that thread, and didn't find any actionable information. I posted there about a month ago, and just now posted again, fingers crossed!

    I messaged quick guards a while back but never heard back. It appears the ones he has on the catalog all have adjustment screws for the neck pickup.
