Omit R24, R25, R26, R27, J9 and the headphone jack. I believe that Mouser pn# 836-2617 would be a suitable hole plug on the Budgie SE black & gold top plate.

I also did not use the headphone output, and mounted a vintage surplus Dialco LED pilot light in the hole, powered it from the filament supply, with an added 1N4007 diode, and470 ohm series resistor, to feed current-limited DC to the LED.

I was too cheap to buy a power switch with the built in light, I just picked an appropriately sized, simple SPST switch from the junque box
