    I've been getting into a lot of grungy stuff lately, specifically bands like Melvins and Mudhoney, and I noticed that in pictures, bassist of both bands, Matt Lukin, can be seen playing a Fender P-Bass with an unusual metal control plate on the pickguard. Or maybe it isn't, I dunno. Can anyone give some insight on to what it might be?
    I also see a small knob or button above it, if anyone has any ideas I'm all ears.

    Actually my friend, that’s a different Mudhoney bassist, Guy Maddison. Matt Lukin departed from mudhoney back in 1999. I can only guess that whatever control plate on his Precision bass is was custom installed.
