Hi, I just received my gitane D-500. I am going to install the schatten pickup, and was wondering if some other people who use them could give me some advice. Is there any reason to modify the tailpiece so that the endpin jack is centered? If it is truly an unnescessary step than I will skip it, but I want to make sure there are no advantages to changing it. Also, while I have some experience working with guitars, I have never added an endpin jack where there wasn't already a hole. Any tips on how to do it cleanly? I don't see why I wouldn't be able to do it myself, but I am a little nervous.
