ok so i like to have a place to anchor my thumb cuz i play with my fingers(depending on the bass you cant use the pickup)...the question is can i buy a thumb rest and if so where (like a web site or store) and if i do buy one do you think i could et it up on by a local music store.

thanks for your help.

Yea, you can buy one. You could probably get one at your local music store. If not, go to any online music store and look under parts for bass guitars.

i've never seen a bass pickup that you can't rest you finger on. even the single coil 50's P bass is thick enough.

I played on my mate's P-Bass, I hate those pickups for resting on. Just irritating. That could be the only bass (other than an acoustic or Variax) that I wouldn't use the pups for resting my thumb on.

They have a few there. Please search google before asking questions like this.


Thats a cover for the pickups not a place to rest your thumb.

And yes google is an amazing tool.

Jeez, five dollars for a bit of plastic. I got mine for fifty cents (53 with tax). But I'm afraid to install it cause i might just change my mind.

...and the bassist comes up to the EQ and moves all the sliders into the typical smiley face pattern and in a really thick Jamaican accent said "you can't have de bass without de smiley face"
