    I'm thinking about mounting this Jazz chrome pickup cover on my bass, and would like to get others input. To me, it doesn't look that bad. It kinda looks like it should be on the bass...

    Nice lookin' bass! Personally I hate those darn pickup covers, they just get in the way. That's the only way I really think about it, from a playability standpoint (I could care less if it looks cool or not). YMMV of course! :)

    Pretty bass!

    To try it out without drilling holes you could mount the pickup cover with some double sided tape. That way if you find it gets in the way all you have to do is peel the tape off.

    It doesn't look out of place to me. The problem is that I could be a kook! LOL Hey, if you like it, go for it. If our instruments were all the same this'd be one boring planet!

    Putting that pickup cover on that nice FBB would be a travesty. I'd say don't do it.

    Why would you want to do that? What purpose will it serve? All you would do is take away from that beautiful top.

    I wouldn't do it, no way-no how
