Unfortunately I do not on this one. If I open it up again, i'll take a few pics. Not as clean on the inside as it is on the outside...

since you said no headphones, is the 3.5 jack functional, or just to fill in the hole?

i really dig the colors!
Yeah, it's just there to fill in the hole. I never use headphones so I often omit them. When I sell, if the buyer requests headphones I can just wire the jack.
