    Hey! New here this is my 1st post. I just got back into playing bass after a 15 year break called life! Man it goes fast. My question is what do Chrome Pickup Cover do? Are they for looks or are they for lazy people to rest their hand on, or do they some how make the pick ups better?
  2. Nothing...

    Although an old legend says that on vintage instruments they prevent the fairy dust from escaping and making the bass loose all its pre CBS mojo!

    All in all, they just look cool! And somewhat make your bass sound different JUST because of the fact that you end up playing with your right hand in a zone that you wouldnt really play otherwise!
    (without them i usually play over the pickups with them on its impossible!)
