P bass control plate.

Are you talking about a metal control plate à la jazz bass style but in a p shape?

 

I just went through this conundrum with my P-bass bitsa build but gave up trying to source one and ended up getting a mirrored pick guard and trimming it down. It wasn’t entirely successful as I’m a bit cack-handed when it comes to craft skills but it will do until a better alternative comes along. So, I can’t answer your question but I’m interested in the outcome.

 

I did think about contacting these guys but haven’t got around to it yet.

They seem oriented to normal plastic/acrylic/celluloid versions but might be able to do a metal one at a price.

They look ideal, apart from the extra hole. If they did one with just 3 holes it’d be exactly what I’m after. 
Why the extra hole?😳

That’s what I’m thinking too. I wonder how well it would actually fit a Precision because the mounting holes are not in the same place as a standard pick guard.

 

This is the one I made out of a mirrored pick guard:

I know this isn't quite what you're after, but could this be an option? It has the right number of holes, at the very least... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/194264507947?hash=item2d3b11262b:g:CBgAAOxy4YdTTZyL

I tried one of those but it doesn’t really work unfortunately.
