    I am new to the commercial forums so please feel free to let me know if I get things mucked with my posts (!)

    I am a lil one man band operation making limited run CNC
    machined thumb rests designed for "easy on easy off"
    and make no holes in your bass!

    The one I make for the Rickenbacker 4001 and 4003 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ohbYM7OlutU
    has gone over really well, and now have one for the 10 hole
    pattern Fender Jazz Bass.

    I am looking for information on other models like the other Fender
    Jazz patterns, Lakland, and have Music Man Stingray version in the works.
    http://www.zero-mod.com

    You can see my Ric and Jazz rests on Troy Hughes basses
    on You Tube!

    Got the first batch of black ones in today - an acrylic we believe will provide the strength and quality established by the polycarbonate edition!

    Email me for availability

    PKR - Please do! :bassist:


    As to Stingray - YES!
    I have a design...Still trying to find the time to make
    the prototype and if you are interested in being a
    "Zero Mod Test Pilot" you can try it and report back
    to me...And then get one at cost for your troubles!


    I am right now making prototypes of the P Bass design
    the toughest nut to crack... The Squier Affinity P is easy
    but the standard P is problematic. Got something cooking on it.

    We have one for Lakland Jazz available now - Also fits
    Mike Lull MV4 ,Sadowsky Vintage, and Metro Vintage.
    and some Sandberg models.

    Yeah, a LOT of people have been saying that.

    Which is why I pushed it ahead of the Stingray
    and some others. The screw pattern of the standard P
    does not lend itself to this ....But I am trying something
    really different:cool:

    Should have one cobbled to test next week and IF
    it works on MY P bass I will be moving forward!

    Have to take the regular Fender rest I screwed on
    years ago, off for the tests:D

    Sure will:bassist:

    I am keeping track of this listing and will
    update as things happen!

    Checked out the Bongo (pics online)
    definitely doable - Will keep it in mind.

    I own a Squire P bass (Affinity series), but I never play it :). Good luck!

    Have not forgotten your Bongo....It's in the pipeline ;)

    Still working on the other P Bass model, much more complex...
    Will have a test bed one in a week.

    Oh, no worries what so ever :). There's a lot more basses out there that are more popular.

    OK, no takers - Test pilot for the Squier version?

    How about for the main classic P Bass?

    Guard screw like the one in this illustration?
    The important screw is the 2nd one from the right
    along the top edge. This is the one that took me a while to work out!
    it is actually supported by just that one screw believe it or not :hyper:

    Here is what the prototype looks like on my workhorse P Bass - This one AIN'T pretty
    But it is a working version - CNC made ones in black white and clear will be way nicer looking :cool:
