I have three current questions and seek your advise, each one with its own post.
First One: I am considering having you place the 5 Pin Jack on the side of the bass, rather than on the top, hate to break up too much of that beautiful wood top, after seeing your post with the sealer coats - what do `ya think? Is this suggestion do-able?/ or recommended;
see my thoughts below:

Do you even like placing the jack on the side of the bass?- personnally I think there are pros and cons;
pros: Top placement -you can see where you are plugging/unplugging the instrument cord into: also it looks cool too.
cons: obviously covering up the wood. In this case could the jack on the front be placed away from the dark viens (lines) by the tailpiece area and put by/closer to the "knot" just below where those lines are located?

Too late for this one! I usually am a couple of days behind on posting pics to when I take them. The holes are already drilled according to the plan we had back in March.

It looks cool, I'll catch another photo with the drilling pattern by Friday for you.

As Jack Bruce would have sang...I`m glad (3x).
One less thing to get obsessed over.
I`ll look forward to the photo upcoming.
Thank you. -Rich
