    on a recent thread, the p-bass gallery one, io saw that a lot of you had thumb rests on them(at least i think they were thumb rests)

    do you know where you can get them, and if i would be able to install it myself?

    Most Fender dealers have them, or you can get one from Musicians Friend. They cost about $6. I put one on my Essex P, and it is pretty easy to do. It came with a template and instructions. You just have to drill two holes.

  4. If you want to add a nice touch to your bass, you could make a thumbrest out of rosewood or maple (make it fit your fingerboard wood). :D

    All of the Fender thumbrests I've picked up have been dark brown in color, which I think is supposed to simulate Bakelite. Has anyone seen them in black?

    The one I bought is black. It matches my black bass just fine...
