    So I got my black pickguard from Terrapin.  All the screw holes matched, but I did have to shave the neck pocket slightly to get it to fit.  May have over shaved it by just a hair, making sure it wasn't too tight, but it looks good!  I'd rather have it a little loose anyways, as I don't want the plastic rubbing on the neck tightly and damaging it.  Overall I'd say they did a good job with it, the material had a few marks on it after I peeled off the plastic, but nothing terrible or worth complaining about.  I'd say go for it, as long as you know it will fit your Vintage Plus.

      Thanks thats good to know,  I will keep it in mind when I start that project.  My vintage plus has a pearl pickguard and duncan rails.  The duncan rails sound very modern to me.  I was going to switch to lollar pickups with a black pickguard to give is a vintage sound and look,  I ended up buying an old 400 series instead that sounds more like a vintage spec strat. So now Im keeping the duncan vintage rails in my vintage plus,  I am still thinking about changing to a black pickguard instead of pearl.
