I have been thinkin about getting a Jbass this summer. Not sure what model yet. My question is; can you remove the pickguard on any Jbass without exposing wires and detaching the pickup. The reason I ask is that I really like the look of the Jbass's without a pick guard, yet the metal plate under the pots remain. Understand what I am saying? Tim Commerford has a J that looks like this, for example. Thanks guys.
