So far I am really liking this!
I haven't seen that before, that's cool
Very nice. Did you buy it or make it?
Nevermind. I get it now, Zero mod is the product
I'm just gonna buy a piece of half-round clear acrylic pipe from a hobby shop
They make thumbrests for ric's, stingray's, jazz basses and p basses.
Nice find! If they would have had this when i started out, i would probably still have my Stingray.
I am pretty sure the manufacturer of these is a TBer. Good idea if you like to play by the neck. I mount my thumbrests near the bridge, so they need mods.
Very cool idea!
A pretty specific FYI: the precision version doesn't work with gold anodized pickguards. It needs the thickness of a standard P guard to stay in place.
Yup, its @groucho and he's a great guy too.
I've got a Ric zero mod rest en route at the moment, can't wait to install it! He needs to get a Sterling model too.
I'm still trying to figure out how to mount a thumb rest by my P p-up. It's too far away when I leave enough room for the ears to come up.
I used to depend on a thumb rest but, I find that I no longer need it. Once a person has played bass for awhile, it's time to forgo the training wheels and just play.
Playing 25+ years. Still using my training wheels, and quite regularly, too.
I'm one of those former guitar players who use a pick and always will...but I think these thumbrests are great!
My zero mod thumb rests are the second (neck) pup on my HH Ray and American Standard P.
Yeah, same here nearly 30 years in. I'm just a slow learner I guess. Either that or I suck...
Too bad I can't "just play".
A "micro company" (me and my wife) and our Machine Shop guy.
Still developing model ideas so feel free to suggest them!
THANKS "lowmid1" for posting the pic.
Stingray 5 version is almost done. (being prototype tested now)
Got one for Fender Jaguar coming out...
And a direct replacement for stock Fender rests that is lower profile.
Also a Bongo version in the works.
We may be able to help you.
We are working on a "low rider" version of the P rest!
The one we have now locates just like a regular Fender, but guys have asked me about
one that can sit lower. The trick is making it adhere to the ZM philosophy "no new holes"
But I can ping you when it does happen.
That would be awesome! Something that sits closer to the bridge and about 18mm away from the E would be excellent. Then it would be in the same position as a B string on a 5er.
