Charvel So Cal Pickguard question

Hi all -

I'm looking to replace my MIJ Charvel So Cal pickguard with a different pickup configuration and knob layout. Does anyone know if the MIA pickguards are the same as the MIJ? If not, does anyone have a MIJ pickguard template around?
I would trace out mine but I'm heading out on vacation and would like to place the order before leaving.

Thanks in advance,

I seem to recall that a warmoth pickguard will fit with a little modification. Warmoth should know, so a phone call to them should to the trick.

Dunno about the MIJs, but the MIAs had the same 11 hole pattern as a USA Strat. The only issue was the neck pocket, which is wider on the Charvel, and you have to trim the pickguard there.
