A zillion years ago I had a X-brand guitar - no, really - it had NO name on it. But what it DID have was a small rail, if I can call it that - that you used to pull the strings and held on to it with your fingertips. I think there was a model of Fender that had this rail on the pickguard near the G-string or some were on the E-string side too, maybe. I just wonder if anyone knows the name of that 'rail' and if they have a picture of one on a P-bass that I might copy. Maybe I'd like one on my rejuvenated P-Bass. Someday I'd also like to find a WHITE/RED/WHITE pickguard for the P too: haven't found on yet through Google. Nostalgia is, as nostalgia does.
