    well i've noticed some old fenders have this weird peice on it by the neck an dive been playing bass for 3 years now and still dont know wat it is. if this is a dumb questio nim sorry but i just dont understand if its a pickup or not. ive never done this but ill try and attach a picture, hopefully it works. i tried doing a search in pickups(thats what it looks like) but i didnt know what its called. so thanks for anything, sorry if this post seems dumb, its just bothering me i cant figure out what it is.

    Is it at an angel? It's probably a thumb rest, at least, that's my guess. By the neck, at an angel, not under the strings?
