    Why is it that all of Leo Fenders Bass pickups have mounting tabs? Wouldn't it of been simpler to route a simple rectangle or just an oval. Other then the jazzmaster pickups all of the Fender guitar pickups have an oval or rectangle route on the pickguard and a smooth route in the body that you can do with a 1/2" router bit. Does it have any advantage over how a guitar humbucker or soap bar mounts?
