I'm considering getting a jazzmaster, I've never owned a fender guitar before, but I've tried out the Classic Player at my local shop. A classic player model is not in my price range, so I'm looking into getting a Backtop and doing some cosmetic and hardware modifications. I'm wondering if a standard tortoise shell pickguard (like the one on Fender.com) will fit on a blacktop, or whether I need to have one custom-made, and whether the body can support little things like new knobs and pickup covers. I'm also wondering how much work is required to switch the HB pickup to a classic JM single-coil. Also, any info you can provide on the guitar itself or your opinions on it would be appreciated.
