Wierd thing going on with my affinity BSB from china. I actually bought 2 about a week apart. One has a metal jackplate, or rather 2 plates bent together that looks like 1 plate. The other is plastic like everybody elses. The one with the metal plate was sold to me for about 15% discount because t it has some chips in the finish. But it feels and sounds the best of my 2. But the 3 way switch is cheap and sometimes makes bad contact. That switch has got to go. Not really a hotrod mod, just a practicality.
