Trem Covers on Jems and UV's

Do you normally leave the trem spring covers on or off on your Jems and UV's?

I leave them off for a few of reasons:

1. Easier access to spring & claw for those tiny tweaks I do every now and then.
2. Several of my plates are irreplaceable because they're painted to match the guitar (RG-USA1), or they're matching pieces of real wood (RG-ARCH, RG-EGYPT). If I *need* a plate, the good ol' black plastic ones will work fine.
3. I've seen "Live Without A Net" too many times. LOL

In case someone asks:
No- UV/7-string and JEM/6-string trem spring cover plates are NOT interchangeable.
Seems obvious enough, but you'd be surprised at how many dealers have little to no grasp of this.
When you order a new one, be sure to get the right size. :-)

I leave them off - usually for looks more than anything. But it is convenient when I have to tweak also.

on my JEM7VWH, the back plate stays on because I never need it off. I've never seen such a trouble free guitar. I never need to adjust it, because it stays where I put it

My RG-450 however, doesn't even have a back plate. I think I threw it away one day when it went out of tune in the middle of a song for the 3rd time.

So, I decide whether the plate stays off based on how often I have to remove it.

My guitars have AATC (All Access Trem Cavity). It's implemented as soon as I remove the cover.
