I have a jazz bass and i was wondering if i put a brigde cover and a pickup to make it hav dat vintage look, would it still be possible to slap and pop?

i have a pickup cover on my jazz bass and i find it makes it more difficult to slap but not impossible and i'm sure you could get used to it

Depends where you slap...but you could probably get a bridge cover if you dig it

stingray5 the bridge cover on a jazz bass is much longer, it covers the bridge pickup aswell as the bridge

I think I'd use it if I had one there.

Why's it odd? Looks perfectly reasonable for playing at the bridge.

I've heard that proper slap technique sets your hand at the end of the fretboard, so provided the PU cover isn't right there, you should manage. Flea-style slapping however, may not be possible.

Also, even for playing at the bridge, that thumbrest seems in an odd place. Seems awfully close.

It look absolutely ridiculous to me. Then again, I have really wide hands and I can keep my thumb on my thumb rest (which is pretty much in the stock position) and still play at the bridge.
