Correcting pickguard fit

Hi, I'm putting together a standard Telecaster, I have a pickguard that doesn't fit correctly around the neck and was wondering if anyone had any advise on filing down a side and what tool is best to do this with? I plan on replacing it with a mint green guard, but just in case I have this problem come up again i'd like to be prepared. Thanks

If there a decent amount Ill start with a half round bastard file.  But since it sounds like you have only a little fitting to do any medium file should do.  Just have another one that's on the small and round side for the rounded corners.  I have a set of rat tail files I use for that.

Thanks, it doesn't sound too hard but I was just curious on what type of files to use.
Krieg, it's just a Warmoth standard tele.
