About this Product
The Thumb Half-Rail (Bridge Half in this case) is a long thumb rest for a bass guitar that runs the length of the right hand playing surface (between the pickup(s) and the bridge) allowing for wide range of tone variation with a comfortable and familiar hand position. This eliminates the tone-limiting "thumb on the pickup" locations or hand stretching to get where you want to be to get the right tone and attack. Just play.
Secures at a standard pick guard screw location using your existing screw, making it an easily reversible update to your bass.
This unit is designed specifically for the Fender Jazz Bass and assumes the use of NO pickguard. Meaning, this Thumb Rail is a full 8mm deep all the way across to be as flush as possible to the height of both pickups. It may fit others, but has only been tested on the following:
FITMENT TESTED ON:
1976 Fender Jazz
1999 Fender Geddy Lee Artist Series Jazz
Message me if you have purchased and found it fits a year or model not listed above.
The Half Rail is available in both NON-Polished and Polished plastics and Alumide. Non-polished has a textured surface which ads some grip keeping your thumb in place nicely. If you prefer a smooth surface, order "Polished Strong & Flexible"...available in colors too.
