I personally don't like the look of them much, but I'm wondering (not having one - yet!): if you remove it, what can you do with the screw holes?? :confused:

Honestly I found it to be really well made. OK, the...

The Powertron Plus page says you can, or at least hint that you can (see toward the bottom - Tone/characteristics). Duo-tron says nothing. Yeah, need to email for that one.
