Product Description

The Thumb Rail is a long thumb rest for a bass guitar that runs most of the length of the right hand playing surface allowing for an endless amount 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.


This ThumbRail is specifically designed for the Reverend Fellowship Meshell Ndegeocello bass only.


This ThumbRail is a little different than the rest. Due to there being no pickguard or mounting screws to attach to, this ThumbRail floats above the body similar to a 5th string.  It mounts into the back of the bridge and to the pickup mounting screw, so it is in the plane of the top of the pickup and bridge.  


The fitment of the prototype is great, but the rail flexes a little more than I personally prefer. I am putting this product into a Beta state until it gets road tested more, but the Beta program allows for anyone that wants to try it in the meantime to do so  Please provide any feedback you may have. I am only making it available in plastics. Metals will come after the design is finalized and it is strength tested.
