I've got a Gibson ES-333 and am adding a pickguard to it. I've got the right guard but the bracket that I bought raises the pickguard too high. I've included a picture below to show the height. The bracket is from All Parts, item AP-0626-001.

If anyone has the correct bracket for this please let me know. Or if you know where I can order the correct bracket that would be appreciated as well.

Thanks in advance.

Would simply bending the shaft solve the problem?

Thanks for the replies everyone. I've bought from Dan several times in the past and I agree that he does great work. I should have updated this thread last week, I found the correct Gibson bracket that worked perfect. Along with adding the pickguard I also put aged reflectors ('59 Parts), a white switch tip and OX4 pickups with the aged covers. I also had a friend do a light polish on it bringing out a light semi gloss appearance. It now plays, feels, sounds and looks just the way that I was hoping it would turn out. Below are before and after pics.
