I have a question to all those who've installed DiMarzio Model J pickups on Fender Geddy Lee basses. GL's have grounding metal plates on the bottom of pickup cavities. Since Model J's are taller than your typical jazz bass pickups, I was thinking of taking the grounding plates out of the cavities, so that I could have more space to lower the new pickups (I don't want them too close to the strings). My questions is: when you installed yours, did you leave the metal plates or did you take them out? It seems that they don't really help when it comes to hum and noisy pickups.
