    5C4A5AD2-B0B2-41B8-A322-48055CC9321F. remove that silly etched neck plate and install aftermarket aged neck plate
    Next, drill holes where the mute mounts would have been , ash tray cover holes, and strap button on the back of the headstock

    If I bought one (and I did like the one I played) I would go a similar route, at least picking up where they left off in an effort to make it more stylistically authentic. Having said that, I would have to think about taking off the Flee neck-plate, if only because - well, it isn't a real '61 vintage Jazz and after all if not for Flee it may not exist/have been produced by Fender. But you know, to each their own etc...
