I have acquired a Fender Bullet Deluxe guitar, Telecaster style body, two single coils, and no pickguard. I believe this guitar to be from 1981 or early 1982. Does anyone have a template from which I could get a replacement pickguard made?

      work a template up yerself . . . yes , you can do it and it can be fun , or frustrating .

      then go here for custom quotes if you can't find it anywhere else .

I appreciate the info and have previously contacted the places you listed. Perhaps I should rephrase my question to be - "Does anyone have a Fender Bullet Deluxe, Telecaster Style body, who would be willing toprovide me a tracing of their pickguard so I can have one made for the Bullet Deluxe I own?".

good !

or you can print a photo of that guitar and make it to 100% (actual size) . and make your own outline from that . a hassle , but it's the same amount of hassle you're willing to ask someone else to do for you . at least try this out , .while you are waiting .

this is exactly what I had to do for my lefty tele bass . I made it from a G&L model . an actual one did NOT exist ! then I submitted it to W. Shortly thereafter, they offered a T-body Bass  for a while , I believe they discontinued it now .

the body had to be elongated to accomodate the bass scale .

this type of effort might be needed again in the future for any other project you might have at a later date !?

Cheers  :eek:ccasion14:
