    It's been sitting in a sealed container in the house.
    If it doesn't work out I'll use it to glue saxophone pads in...what it was originally intended for.

    You have more patience than me.
    I just slackened the strings, removed the plate, discarded the plastic and re-tightened it.

    I'm almost a seasoned veteran at headstock mutilation.
    It does take some practice to get right.
    You don't need specialised tools (unless you have the cabbage to spare).

    Like on the Fender Squier the neck pocket is set deeper into the body
    (probably methinks to counter 'neck dive')
    Neck plate position should have been shifted to compensate.

    O.K. a negative spin, but here goes.
    Correct me if I'm wrong (usual am) but I thought this particular model was prone to 'neck dive'.
