Locking Jack question??

    Has anyone done this or seen it? Install a locking jack on a Fender (or Fender style) bass?? Not the active ones that have the jack on the body side but the jack that is on the body front? I'm thinking about doing this to my Jazz but have never seen it anywhere before!

    I installed a Neutrik locking jack on my Ibanez franken-fretless - it was only a matter of drilling a larger hole in the body front and slap it in. Worked very well and looked pretty mean as well.
    But I don't know how it would be to install such a thing on a Fender style instrument, if it has a metal plate or something that the controls are mounted on. Perhaps that would be a bit more trouble, as there is only so much room on those things.

    Neutriks are really cool, if it is possible on your bass go ahead and install it it. :)
