    Wonder if the "metalplate" that goes over the pick-up near the neck has some important function? Does it effect the sound or is it just nice to lay the thumb on?

    Are you speaking of the Fender pickup and bridge covers? No they serve no real purpose beyond protecting the pickup and bridge assemblies.

    If you mean some other type of metalplate then you will have to be more specific.
