ISO Pickguard for my ‘59 425

Hey all, this is a long shot but I figured you fine folks would be my best shot. I’m on the hunt to replace my cracked 425 pickguard. Was looking at pickguardian recently but didn’t see the exact one I needed due to the pickups moving around from one generation to the next (mines the version that has the pickup in line with the pickguard screw). I don’t really want to disassemble the guitar to the extent needed to take a tracing of the existing one for a repro, knowing full well that it will probably cost more and be a lengthier search I’d still much rather find a legit vintage Rick one then have one made, I’d even settle for a “slightly less damaged” one if anyone has something floating around. I’ve attached a picture to show the detail more clearly regarding the pickup placement. Any suggestions would be hugely appreciated and hey if you got one collecting dust somewhere....I’m your guy!

I wouldn't do a tracing. I would mail Tony the original. I realize this isn't the answer you wanted to hear lol
