    I know the tug bar is in the old school position, but to me, I would want it in the thumb rest position, as would the guy in the picture I bet......plus why put something on that serves no functional purpose

    because fender specializes in marketing 'mojo'

    I love a lot of fenders I have played, but I ignore a lot of listings because they have SO MANY 'buyers' basses instead of 'players' basses...

    or what do I know, maybe there is a clamoring demand from the tug bar community

    Hey, be nice! When I play with my thumb, I actually use that silly thing! (I must admit, though, that I don't really miss it on the basses that don't have it :rolleyes: )

    wasn't trying be mean ...I play with my thumb occasionally, but I would bet 97.675% of players use 1/2/3 fingers 89.333% of the time [no actual data to back this up :D ]

    I added a thumb rest on my MIM Jazz...looks good and is useful is all I'm saying
