Ahhh! After going to the music store this past week I realized that I built myself a god-awful crutch! I took a thumb rest and put it on my Fender P-bass a while back. And although it is very comfortable, I realized that I was unable to effectivly play any other bass that didn't have one!! Tonight - first thing - that thumb rest is coming off and never going back on. Of course I will have two holes in the bass, but whatever! Fenders look better a little damaged anyway. Later - K.
