I just got this and installed it as a "tug bar" instead of a thumb-rest (ala 60's Jazz Bass). The original placement for this piece was below the G string so that you had a place for your fingers while you played with your thumb, which is how bassists who were used to playing double-bass used to do it. It was moved above the E string as a thumb rest in the 70's, and discontinued in the 80's. The template that comes in the package only covers the thumb-rest placement (above the E string) for both the Jazz and Precision basses, so if you want to get the cool 60's vibe (50's for the Precision) and place it below the G string, you have to eyeball it yourself. Fortunately, there are enough detailed pictures on the Fender site of re-issue bases that have the "tug bar" that it isn't too hard. I did it, and now my Mexi Fretless Jazz Bass looks like a 60's reissue.

It was not a semi solid Thumb Rest I thought it would be...You could make a better one out of a pieace of wood and paint it black...
Does not look it in the picture but it is a cheap pieace of hollow plastic.
very cheaply made

        Comments about Fender Thumb Rest Precision Bass and Jazz Bass:

        Does what it's supposed to, as in it screws in where it's supposed to go and stays there. Not sure why on a Jazz bass the pre-drilled holes are on the lower side of the strings, but this comes with a template to put them on the top on P or J basses, and that's cool.

          I have a Jazz Bass and mostly use a pick but when I want to use a finger technique I can anchor my hand now. They give you a diagram with it and it can be used above or below your strings.

            Comments about Fender Thumb Rest Precision Bass and Jazz Bass:

            Played Fender bass since 1957. This thumb rest is just as good as the original. I installed it on my new Jaguar VM bass. Did not use the templates that came with the thumb rest but put it where I wanted it to suit my taste. It is not weak and does not bend as some suggest. Has a glossy finish that matches the black pick guard. Blends right in.

                      I bought this to add to my fender jazz bass and the quality of build is terrible. It's made of thin cheap plastic and when I dug down into my strings and leaned on the thumb rest it bent in the center deforming. It should be made of a thicker plastic. Now I have two holes I drilled I. My guitar for nothing. I filled the holes with some pick guard screws but it looks wrong now. I plan on find a wood one soon or making my own thumb rest. Don't buy this one...

                        Positive point of reference. Good feel. Prefect size for my Very large hands. I use this type of rest on all my acoustic bass's.
