    What's that at the nut of this bass? What function does it serve? I don't think it's a capo since the bassline in that song wouldn't have warranted one.

    It does look like a capo though--maybe it's on the nut, to keep the strings from flying out :p or to reduce ringing strings the way people use a hair scrunchie. Or maybe he just likes to have the capo handy so he doesn't have to fumble around to find it on a dark stage, for the songs that need it.

    It could be a pickup, for sustain and feedback.

    I've been watching the video this is from and I think I may be playing that song incorrectly. "(
