Fender JBass Cavity Plate

    There is a brass plate with wires attached to it at the bottom of the control cavity on my parts jazz bass. I'm guessing that this is supposed to be part of the grounding.

    I'm going to shield the cavity (foil or paint, not sure yet) and I'm wondering if this plate should be removed completely.

    The body is from a Fender Relic bass in case that helps in identifying the plate.
