Jazzmaster humbucker adapter rings

Do these exist for dropping a normal humbucker into a Jazzmaster pickup size hole? Probably a dumb reason why they don't exist that I have missed.

Why not just get a new pickguard? I get that there are aesthetic considerations but imo the size difference between a humbucker and a jazzmasterpup would just make it ugly

Jazzmaster pickups routes aren’t deep enough to accommodate humbuckers in many cases, fyi. That being said, if the routes are deep enough, some folks buy Jazzmaster pickup covers and chop humbucker-sized holes in them and mount the humbuckers to the Jazzmaster covers.

I went with a custom pickguard from Tone-Guard for mine.

Jaime from Creamery Pickups will adapt any of his humbucker designs into Jazzmaster-size pickups. If you're looking for something in particular, you can message him and he will cook them just for you. He's a fairly easy guy to work with.
