    I just thought I'd try this out,
    Recorded direct no effects
    16/44.1
    I tried to play the same both times, finger style
    Bill Lawrence P-46 P position and Bill Lawrence design Fender Deluxe Bridge humbucker, balance control centered, vol & tone wide open

    I put the Fat Finger at the very end of the neck

    wadda y'all think ?

    You can extend the sustain of any bass by mounting a C-clamp on the headstock

    Jim C has distilled the Fat Finger to its essence. Having said that, I own one which I bought to use on a G&L L-2500 fretless. According to my ears, and that of several others who listened and played the instrument, there was a noticeable difference. Experimenting with the positioning of the device is important in getting the best results.
