    So, I have a 2005 Peerless (KP serial) 5120. It has the huge F holes, fixed bridge, and B70. Both of the supposed 5120/5122 pickguards I have ordered (one clear, one silver) don't fit. They actually look like the same pick guard, just different color! The size of the pickguard cutout, the holes, none of it lines up. Has anyone seen anything like this before? I know my guitar is an oddball, but I just want it to look more proper. Plus, the holes are already there!

    Is the pickup spacing on your model the same as the prolines....perhaps? (i.e. wider than the 5120 models).

    Could be you need to order a 6120 guard?

    Just a thought.

    I recommend build one on your own ! That is no Rocket-science and it´s pretty easy !
    I made it and the first try fits perfect !! ;-)
